Tournament in Denmark: Women’s World Cup not on free TV: handball boss angry

The German handball players start the world championship on Thursday. The games can only be seen live on the Internet for a fee. This upsets the DHB boss.

DHB boss Andreas Michelmann reacted with incomprehension to the fact that the World Cup games of the German handball players cannot be seen live on freely accessible television again. He criticized the public broadcasters in particular.

“I see the diversity of sport at risk due to the very one-sided reporting by ARD and ZDF. With the fixation on football – for both men and women – it is important to think about orienting the reporting on the success of the teams.” said the President of the German Handball Association to the German Press Agency.

He added that he expects the public broadcasters “to question whether their reporting is still up to date or whether it is not time to present the entire spectrum of sport and that women have a real chance to be shown.” the 64 year old.

When asked by the dpa, ARD and ZDF pointed out that they did not own the TV rights. This was acquired by the online broadcaster Sportdeutschland.tv, which broadcasts all World Cup games – including those of the DHB selection – live on the Internet for a fee. The German team starts the tournament on Thursday (6 p.m.) in Herning, Denmark against Japan, in which Iran and Poland are the other group opponents.
