2013 – today: LGBT Euro Handball Championship
At a club leader’s meeting in Antwerp in 2013, the LGBT handball clubs agreed on organizing only one international LGBT handball tournament each year. This would have the status of LGBT Euro Handball Championship. The objective was to secure a highest possible attendance for each tournament, as some of the tournaments in previous years had few registrations due to the fact that the clubs prioritized traveling to different tournaments.
The tournaments are planned three years ahead, and which cities are going to get the annual tournament, is decided on a team leader’s meeting each year at the LGBT Euro Handball Championship.
