The 2016 EHF European Men's Handball Championship (12th tournament) will be held for the first time in Poland from 15–31 January. The European Championship in Poland will be one of the biggest handball events ever.


The VELUX Group benefits greatly from its sponsorship of the Champions League in handball. The leading producer of roof windows is therefore also sponsoring the coming European Championship in Poland between 15th and 31st January.

The European Championship will be broadcast in more than 200 markets and territories. This time, EHF (European Handball Federation) expects a bigger audience than the 900 million viewers who followed the last championship on TV.

Serbia will play in the preliminary round versus host Poland, defending champion France and FYR Macedonia

Serbia have changed coaches four times since winning silver at home at the EHF EURO 2012: When the team missed the quarter-finals at the World Championship 2013 Veselin Vukovic was sacked and intermediately replaced by SG Flensburg-Handewitt coach Ljubomir Vranjes.
Vranjes was succeeded by Vladan Matic, who took over for the EHF EURO 2014 but failed to reach the main round. When an eight-goal advantage was not enough to beat Czech Republic in the World Championship 2015 Play-offs, Matic resigned immediately.
Hence it was up to former world-cl goalkeeper Dejan Peric to steer the team through the EHF EURO 2016 Qualification Phase. With the prowess of stars such as Marko Vujin and Momir Ilic, Serbia succeeded, placing second in Group 4 to qualify for the final tournament.
