Handball Challenge to promote at the EHF FINAL4
Vienna/Berlin, 03 May 2010 – The German games and software developer Neutron Games GmbH has agreed to cooperate with EHF Marketing GmbH during the EHF FINAL4, the new final phase of the EHF Champions League, which will see Europe’s top four club sides meet in the LANXESS arena, Cologne on 29-30 May 2010 in front of over 19,000 people.
Neutron Games will use the opportunity to present their new computer game, which is going to be released in 2011. “Handball Challenge” is one of the very first handball action games to be produced. At the EHF FINAL4 fans will have the great chance to test the trial version “Handball Challenge Training Camp”, designed as a free mini-game series, right at the booth of Neutron Games.
EHF Marketing’s Managing Director, Peter Vargo, commented on the deal: “Handball Challenge is new, creative and attractive, in this respect similar to the EHF FINAL4. The event in Cologne will be an optimal platform for the company to present their product to handball fans from across Europe.”
Björn Kaminski, Managing Director of Neutron Games, is looking forward to meeting the fans in Cologne: “The biggest club handball event of the year will be a great opportunity for us to meet an international audience and present our game Handball Challenge to them. The great atmosphere of the inaugural EHF FINAL4 will surely contribute to our success with the fans.”
