Joint statement by EHF and GCH
Further to the meeting held in Garda (ITA) on July 21/22 2009, GCH and EHF met in Langenlois (AUT) on September 10/11 to continue on a technical level the work started in Italy in a more political perspective.
Both parties agreed on the principles that would make the representation of European clubs possible and effective inside the structure of the EHF through a board whose creation will be the object of a specific motion (motion N°5) to be submitted to the EHF extraordinary congress to be held in Cyprus on October 23/24. The technicalities of the agreement will constitute a Memorandum of Understanding.
Both parties also agreed on a phasing for the withdrawal of the complaint lodged by GCH against the EHF.
All participants expressed their satisfaction at the progress accomplished over the last few months and their strong desire to build up an adequate level of cooperation to contribute to the further development of handball in Europe.
