Plan International announced as new charity partner

The VELUX EHF Champions League has a new charity partner for the coming season thanks to an agreement with Plan International, a charity helping children in developing countries.

The cooperation between EHF Marketing GmbH and Plan International will see the charity receive extensive TV exposure through on-court advertising (centre circle) as well as online and on media backdrops throughout the season.

The VELUX EHF Champions League will further support the work of the charity by sponsoring a child in Brazil through the ‘Kinder brauchen Fans!’ (Children need fans!) campaign. Europe’s premier club handball competition will join other sports stars, clubs and federations in the initiative to highlight the problems faced by children in developing countries.

Commenting on the agreement, David Szlezak, Managing Director of EHF Marketing GmbH, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Plan International as our official charity partner for the coming season. We are certain that this cooperation will go a long way in supporting the charity’s work and raising its profile among fans of our sport.”

Managing Director of Plan International, Wolfgang Porschen, said: “The partnership with the VELUX EHF Champions League will be a great support in our work with children, young people and their families all over the world and give them a chance to lead safe and self-determined lives. This is an important contribution in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations by 2030.”

The first joint initiative between the VELUX EHF Champions League and Plan International will take place on 20 September to mark World Children's Day (Germany/Austria) and to support children’s rights worldwide.
