CROATIA - Handball World Cup 2009

Handball World Cup
CROATIA 2009.​


Croatia will be the organizer of the Handball World Cup 2009. Croatian people are very proud that it is organized in their country - CROATIA. Despite of its relatively short history, the Croatian team has already made some significant results at the international tournaments. During the 1990s they placed third at the 1994 European Championship and second at the 1995 World Championship before eventually winning the gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics. After these successes they have been going through the time without such good results until they eventually made their comeback by winning the 2003 World Championship. In 2004 they were fourth at the European Championship, but won the gold medal at the Summer Olympics later that year. After these results it was logical that they were one of the favorites of the 2005 World Championship, but lost to Spain in the final match. In 2006 the team finished fourth at the European Championship, where they have qualified for the semifinals by winning the group in the main stage, but were subsequently defeated by Slovenia in the semifinals and Denmark in the third place match.

The Arenas:

ZAGREB ARENA

87 mil. euro - total project cost
7.5 mil. euro - annual cost shared by city council and Croatian govt
133 mil euro - total purchase price if acquired within 7 years
15,200 - spectators for the world handball championships
25,000 - spectator capacity for concerts and conferences
1056 - parking for vehicles

How about the other arenas, Osijek and Rijeka? I heard there were problems with financing in those cities. Split arena looks nice, too bad they didn´t build it when Kukoc, Radja and others were still playing.

There was some serious problems about financing the construction of Osijek Arena, but the government solved that:cheers:
The World Championship won't be played in Rijeka, but they will also build new arena.
-----------------------------


Kukoč, Rađa and others played in this arena which is smaller, capacity around 7000.
This Arena is already getting renovated and will be used to host Handball Championship 2009 if construction workers don't finish the new arena in a deadline :cheers:

''Old'' Split Arena (cap 7000)
(it will be used if new Arena fails to be constructed in a deadline)

It won't be played in Rijeka. Zagreb (2 arenas), Zadar, Split, Osijek, Varazdin and Porec.

All arenas are under construction and will be finished by december 2008, only Split arena might be little tight with deadline, but i think they will manage to finish it.
