Coronavirus and the future for Handball

Postby HB9 » Thu Mar 19, 2020 7:41 am

Probably not a biggie for clubs which are spoonfeed by governments, but for others this is a huge problem now and for future seasons:

Norway: https://www.aftenposten.no/sport/i/zG1p ... har-ikke-k

Byåsen has issued a layoff notice. Several players are not entitled to unemployment benefit

An overall Byåsen stable was willing to take pay cuts of 50 per cent, but that was not enough to avoid layoffs.


Germany: http://www.hbf-info.de/o.red.r/news.php ... schlecht=w

The 14 first and 16 second division teams are already facing enormous, unprecedented economic challenges for the coming season.

More from Norway: https://www.vg.no/sport/haandball/i/xPv ... g-alvorlig

Google translate:
- The reason for the layoffs is the serious situation that has arisen to avoid the spread of the corona virus. The endgame is canceled. Fitness center and handball halls are closed, so we are unable to maintain our business. In addition, the economic framework conditions are very uncertain in the time to come, Storhamar writes in a press release . Players are laid off until May 31.

It is remarkable that a measure for the whole sport is illustrated with a picture of the Handball women national team in romanian press. E.g. in germany quite inconceivably.

Baia Mare suspended the contracts of all players and staff untill further notice, so everybody will be receiving help from the state (75% of the average brutto salary, which brings it around 4000 lei, about 800€)

L.E.

Valcea did the same, many many teams will follow most likely.

Yes, but as far as I understand, players being employed on a "sports-person convention" can't get this money. The nature of these conventions, which don't require them or their employer to pay social contributions, doesn't qualify them for this aid in this period.

After talking to someone involved în românian handball, I understand that players will be payed by the clubs. The 75% and after all the taxes will be payed, a player will get around 400 450 euros. Its tough for a player which average and gets at least 2000 euros. Considering the wages of most of handball players în România, few weeks with 400 euros will not mean they will starving :) The bank account its just fine. After you hear how much makes some players monthly, I dont feel sorry... Perianu makes around 7k euro monthly... She will make into the next month!?

After corona pandemic ends I am wondering if the clubs will be able to support curent wages or the wages were signed în the period january early march 2020. And if the player will accept to get less money.

În România the wages of handball players are ridiculos high... Considering that its a sport which not produces revenues to support. Like TV rights and other resouces.

The Dutch leagues have been cancelled, there will be no promotion and degredations. Teams can request to be promoted. Two teams have requested promotion from the eerste divisie (2nd League) to eredivisie (first League). There were plans to expand the eredivisie with 2 more teams in a few years, this will now be for next year already. There is also at least one team in the eredivisie that is struggling with finances (even worse with the current crisis) and might request to play on a lower lvl, making one more place for promotion. A men's team has been refused promotion even though they basically already became champion...

-It's all very uncertain now with the future economy of Danish club handball due to the corona's contagious effects, which is why we struck when the opportunity offered to reduce the fixed costs, says Herning-Ikast Handball's Sales and Sports Director Daniel Grønhøj .

I renamed the topic to a more generic title.

In Germany the ease of restrictions is decided individually by the 16 federal states. Quite complicated, as one thing may be banned in one state and allowed in the other.

In one of the biggest states (home to Bietigheim, Metzingen and a few smaller ones) full contact sport with 20 people/players is allowed again from the first of July. Even competitions seem to be allowed again, with up to 100 spectators - which is increased to 500 spectators from the first of August.

Hope this will hold up and others will follow - and there won't be a spike in infections. [-o<

In Germany the coalition parties have now agreed to support the leagues in basketball, handball, ice hockey and volleyball as well as the 3rd divison in football with 200 Million Euro for the loss of income from spectators from april up until december. The teams will get around 80% of the expected ticketing income.

This should lift a huge weight of their shoulders as no sporting league could work in Germany (with the expection of 1. Bundesliga football) without the income from spectators. :)

One player from TuS Metzingen also tested positive after flying into Gemany from abroad last week and complaining about a sore throat upon arrival. She didn't take part in any training session.

Running a domestic championship will be a challenge already under such circumstances - and I remain highly sceptical of european matches.

I am hearing there will be positive news soon (perhaps tomorrow) on initial trials of the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine that is backed by AstraZeneca and supported by tens of millions of pounds of government money.

...

If the Oxford vaccine is proven effective, it could go into mass production as early as September.

A male team from Germany(Hannovra) and one from Spain(Logrono) decline the participation at Europe Handball League due to costs, risks and so.I wonder if some female teams will do the same for Europe Handball League.

As far as I know all female teams from Germany will take their place. Quite surprising, as they were very vocal when it came to the financial implications of coronavirus.

In the case of the mens team from Hannover: I think they are more worried about possible travel bans or quarantines, which then could affect their packed schedule for the Bundesliga. Probably a smart think to do, considering all the uncertainties still around at this time.

The schedule of male Bundesliga will be pretty dense this year. Because of Covid-19 there are 20 clubs in the league in this season, and the saeson will only be started in October. And additionally CL or EL for the top teams.
And there are planned free weeks for olympic qualifications, ECh qualifications.
I guess they can't avoid to have three games a week sometimes. So I can understand if a club want to reduce the amount of games to be played, especially international, where travel bans, etc., may cause issues as well.
In conclusion, I declare that EHF must be destroyed

The Dutch team Quintus decided to not participate in the challenge cup (is it still named that?) Because of the coronavirus. Financially it would be to difficult to accomplish as well as the risk for players.
