Twenty Icelandic Handball Fans Invited to Qatar

By Iceland Review

The Icelandic Handball Association has received an invitation from the organizers of the World Cup in Handball, which takes place in Qatar from January 15 to February 1, to send 20 supporters from Iceland to the competition without cost.

Einar Þorvarðarson, managing director of the association, told ruv.is that individuals who have undertaken important volunteer work for the team, such as those who have helped raise funds or sell merchandise, as well some diehard supporters, have been invited rather than sponsors or those who are on the association’s payroll.

“This is a token of gratitude from us in the association and [we] hope that it will be well received,” he said.

The lucky 20 individuals will remain in Qatar for as long as Iceland remains in the competition. According to Einar, flights, accommodation and tickets will be paid.
