VELUX Handball Manager launched

Title sponsor of Europe’s premier club handball competition, the VELUX Group, has launched the first ever international manager game based on the VELUX EHF Champions League in men’s handball.

When the knock-out matches in this year’s competition are played, there will be more at stake than the results in the handball arena. At the website, handball fans from all over the world can now put together and manage their own VELUX EHF Champions League team – completely free of charge.

VELUX Handball Manager is the first game of its kind to let fans buy and sell VELUX EHF Champions League players, earn points on the results of their matches, compete against each other in private or public leagues, and much more.

A chance to beat a legend and win exclusive season tickets

By playing VELUX Handball Manager, handball fans will have the chance to test their skills against international handball star and European Champion Lars Christiansen, who will also be entering the manager game.

Game players will have a chance to win one of the five main prizes, as well as either VELUX EHF Champions League season tickets or signed match shirts.

The competition officially begins at the same time as the first matches of the Last 16 knock-out phase, which starts on 13 March 2013 and ends with the VELUX EHF FINAL4 on 1/2 June 2013.

A new VELUX Handball Manager tournament will take place with the start of the VELUX EHF Champions League season 2013/14.
