About Generation Handball

Generation Handball is a recurring, international handball tournament held in Viborg with both indoor and outdoor handball tournaments and social events for young handball players in the age of 9-20 years who strengthen friendship and make new friends across clubs, age groups, and nationalities. We are the friendliest handball festival in the world and work hard to put focus on team spirit and social awareness. In 2023, 175 teams from 20 countries participated in the tournament.

Generation Handball takes place over the course of six days in the summer holidays, and it is a cooperation between Viborg Municipality, Viborg Sports Council, and the local handball clubs Bjerringbro FH, Viborg HK, and Søndermarkens IK.

Generation Handball was established and held for the first time in 2014 as part of Viborg Municipality’s event strategy plan, which in addition to the handball festival encompasses three other lighthouses: The Snapsting with Viborg Hærvejsfestival, Viborg Animation Festival, and races with both national and international perspectives including Hærvejsløbet.
