Dear Handball Friends

The last competition of 2019, the 41st African Champions Club Championship, will be held this year for the first time in Praia, Cape Verde. A Handball event, certainly rich and intense, which promises to be one of the highlights of the 2019 competition calendar, with the participation of 9 women’s and 10 men’s clubs.

Thus, from October 04 to 13, the best clubs on the continent will compete on the magnificent Cape Verde archipelago, in the hope of confirming their various titles as champions.

As you know, an event of this scale could not be possible without the wonderful teamwork of the organizers, even those who contribute a distant contribution to its total success.

I would like to greet and thank the Cape Verdean Authorities, the Cape Verdean Handball Federation, the Organising Committee, all the players and their coaches who have mobilised to prepare and effectively take part in this great celebration of the youth of our continent.

I would like to conclude my remarks by wishing good luck to all 19 clubs. I am already convinced that victory belongs to our youth, who must carry the flame inspired by the Olympic spirit: always « faster, higher, stronger »!

Handball is about friendship, solidarity and fraternity. It is also a lot of fun and enthusiasm.

I hope that this special moment will please you with the quality of the sport show.

Good competition to all.
Long live African handball!

Thank you.
