DHB and ÖHB shall pay a fine of 2,000 EUR each for not complying with EHF EURO 2010 Qualification Regulations.
Arbitration Tribunal decision
The disciplinary body of the European Handball Federation, EHF Arbitration Tribunal, has dealt with the matter of two National Federations.
The Arbitration Tribunal looked into the matter of organisational shortcomings at two EHF EURO Qualification games and found that the German Handball Federation (DHB) and the Austrian Handball Federation (ÖHB) failed to comply with the 2010 EHF Women’s European Championship Qualification Regulations.
During the Qualification Round 3 game between Austria and France, as well as during the Round 4 game between Germany and Belarus, the organising Federations violated the regulations on flooring requirements. The playing courts at these games were covered by various sports line systems.
The EHF Arbitration Tribunal made the decision that DHB and ÖHB shall pay a fine of 2,000 EUR each.
Right to appeal
In line with the EHF Arbitration Regulations, a statement of claim may be filed at the EHF Court of Arbitration within 21 days.
