BBC Sport announce full coverage of British Handball Super Cup


The Scottish Handball Association (SHA) are proud to announce that BBC Sport, one of the most well-known and trusted sports broadcasting brands in the world, are providing full coverage of the British Handball Super Cup being held at Oriam, Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre.

Scotland will host the Super Cup for the third consecutive year, which will take place over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May at Oriam, Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre in Edinburgh. The competition sees the top four men’s and women’s teams from Scotland and England battling it out for the title and European club competition qualification.

BBC Sport have provided coverage of some other less mainstream sports across the UK in recent times, and whilst Handball fits that category, it also remains one of the major sports across Europe and other parts of the world.

Tom Connor, Executive Editor, BBC Sport said:

“We are looking forward to showcasing the British Handball Super Cup on BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport Scotland website and app.  We know it’s a sport with an enthusiastic following and our coverage will capture all of this, the brilliant atmosphere and exciting competition across the weekend for our audiences.”

Ewan Hunter, CEO – Scottish Handball Association said:

“The Scottish Handball Association are delighted to be working with the team at BBC Sport, and wish to extend our thanks to Richard, Jen, Neil, Tom and the rest of the BBC Sport team for all their help and support.  We’re also extremely pleased to be able to bring this news to the wider handball public, as well as those for whom ours may be a new sport.

As figures show, we are a hugely successful sport in Europe – our recent EHF Men’s European Championships held brilliantly across Germany was watched by over 100 million people during the event.  We have been an Olympic sport for many decades and are one of the biggest sports across Scandinavian and Baltic countries, as well as many other European and international locations.  We are proud to be showcasing the progress made here in Scotland, and across the UK, in handball in recent years.

We look forward to a good crowd, and hopefully those watching on television will be inspired to watch more Handball or even to take part here.  We have many opportunities for people to start playing at any age, whilst the viewing possibilities remain significant in the coming months too; the Paris Olympics is happening this summer, as are the European Cup Finals, the EHF Champions League Finals for Men and Women and many other IHF tournaments too before we head towards the Women’s EHF European Championships in Austria, Hungary & Switzerland at the end of this year and the IHF Men’s World Championships in Denmark, Norway and Croatia at the beginning of 2025”.

The British Handball Super Cup also represents a chance to shine a spotlight on the rising quality of handball across the UK; while also celebrating the culture of handball across both nations and providing an opportunity for all of those involved – volunteers, coaches, referees, officials, players and fans – to join together.
