Premier Handball League unveils Golden Eagles Uttar Pradesh as second franchise

New Delhi : The Premier Handball League (PHL) on Wednesday announced Golden Eagles Uttar Pradesh as the second franchise to participate in the much-anticipated inaugural edition of the tournament.

The UP-based team is owned by the Pavna Group of Industries, an automotive part solution company.

“Handball is a popular sport and most schools in India have included it as a part of their sports curriculum. But with time, the popularity has faded. We as a stakeholder want to support handball and enable it to regain its glory and by joining hands with PHL,” Swapnil Jain, Managing Director of Pavna Group, said in a release.

The league had earlier announced Garvit Gujarat as its first franchise.

The first season of PHL, which is set to take place next year, will provide Indian players the opportunity to rub shoulders with top international players from across the world and enhance their skills.

The dates of the tournament are yet to be announced.

Manu Agrawal, CEO of Bluesport Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, which is the license partner of Premier Handball League, said, “This association with the Pavna Group gives us, the PHL family, immense pleasure and we are proud to state that we both share similar goals which entails taking the sport of handball to the next level.

“With the likes of such committed partners, I am also confident that the league will not only establish itself but work with an equal commitment to ensuring the handball ecosystem sees a sturdy growth in India.”
