The Grundfos sponsorship runs until the end of 2009 and includes the Men’s and Women’s World Championships in Croatia and China respectively. A further cooperation is also planned for the future.
Grundfos has been an IHF partner for quite a long time showing continuous commitment to handball through sponsorship activities at the World Championships in Germany and France in 2007.
“To have a partner that is committed and experienced is an advantage for all participants”, IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa stated. “We are looking forward to a friendly and fruitful cooperation with a partner sharing our ideals and mission to contribute to a healthy and better future through handball.”
“Based on the experience from the 2007 Men’s World Championship in Handball we have great expectations for the coming Championship in Croatia. Handball is a sport attracting increasing attention and involvement in many parts of the world, and Grundfos is happy to take part in this worldwide enthusiasm, says Group Senior Vice President Kim Klastrup from Grundfos Headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark. He adds that there is a good match between the IHF ideals, and the basic values of Grundfos.”
