For the first time in front of an American audience, two of Europe’s top handball teams will face off: Poland and Germany.
This Saturday, July 17th, number five ranked Poland takes on number four Germany at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. Poland comes to the match with a chip on its shoulder after losing to Germany in 2007, the last time the teams met.
The game will be played on 20,000 feet of SnapSports® BounceBack® ShockTower® surfacing. SnapSports is the official flooring provider for USA Team Handball. USA Team Handball recognizes SnapSports BounceBack for its speed, ball response and unique safety features.
“We know that team handball is making strides in the US and we’re coming right along with them. No other company makes surfaces that stand up to the incredibly intense gameplay team handball brings. ” said Jorgen Moller, CEO of SnapSports.
The German team has three Olympic medals, while the Poles have four World Championship medals, so this is sure to be a fierce competition.
Doors open at 10:30 am, July 17 and the festivities begin with live German and Polish music, a beer garden and food. The SportsFive network will broadcast the match.
