PASS IT ON!
As the start of the qualification phase begins on Wednesday, what better time to introduce the tagline and narrative for the Women’s EHF EURO 2020: “Handball is passion. PASS IT ON.” The Danish and the Norwegian hosts express the narrative in these words:
“Handball is passion. There’s a straight line between the bubbly laughs and shrieks of 5-year old newbies to the victory roars and sweaty tears of European champions. We have a responsibility to guard that passion, and by equating today’s stars with tomorrow’s, we bring the amazing values of the game to life and turn the EHF EURO 2020 into something that won’t end with the final whistle. And just as you can’t score if no one gives you the ball, the spirit must be shared to grow. Pass it on.”
The concept is built strongly on the passion associated with handball – not only among elite athletes but also among children, volunteers, fans and seniors playing handball for fun. Fans, players and volunteers, therefore, are encouraged to use this message, and the hashtag #passiton across social media to pass on the passion. So, PASS IT ON!
