Last year the premium partnership between NIGRIN and the German Handball Federation was extended until 2022. The new year 2020 thus started right away with a sporting highlight for MTS: an employee event for the European Championship preparation game Germany vs. Iceland.
In the sold-out SAP Arena in Mannheim with 12,037 spectators, the German national handball team won 33:25 against Iceland. We from the MTS used this as a team event and were there with 180 spectators to cheer! We supported our team with five big banners and showed the four meter big banners during the national anthem.
After a balanced 1st half, Germany went into the break shortly before the change of sides by three goals from Uwe Gensheimer with a 16:13 lead. After almost 35 minutes it was 20:13, the game was almost decided. Towards the end, Iceland put pressure again, but after the second seven-meter, our DHB boys were sure to win, the hall was raging.
The team proved strength, endurance and technique!
A successful preparation game under home game atmosphere for the team!
