Dancing for a good cause, that’s what you could do at the Night of Handball. All digitally and with social distance in times of global corona crisis and at the same time being together for a common goal: to support PlayHandball. Community and social cohesion are currently more important than ever. Community is also important in handball. For this reason, Thio Remmers, Phillip Bütow, Juri Krumnick and Jan Thie from the SG Friedrichsfehn/Petersfehn decided to organise the “Night of Handball” for PlayHandball in Africa and thus collected a total of 2968.14 EUR. Awesome!!!

“Based on the concept of “Night of the Profs” from Oldenburg, various handball players took turns playing music in front of the camera at Amadeus for one evening, thus providing an entertainment value that any series on Net flix would have a hard time surpassing,” said Thie.

In addition to Ulf Duda, Angie Geschke and Thorben Lemke, other active and less active handball players from the region in and around Oldenburg took part in the charity event for the benefit of PlayHandballs and enriched it musically. The unique disco evening was broadcast on 13.03.2021 from 19.00 on www.amatastisch.de directly from the Amadeus in lifestream.

A week before the evening, a large auction campaign was launched on Ebay. Among other things, two signed jerseys from VfL Oldenburg and a signed jersey from Johannes “Jogi” Bitter, the goalkeeper of the German men’s national team, were auctioned off.

The PlayHandball team would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the organisers of the #NightofHandball and everyone who supported, donated, participated and danced along. Thank you from the PlayHandball team in South Africa and Kenya.
