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 children and young people in the age of 10-20 years who make acquaintances of different cultures. In 2019, 232 teams from 19 countries participated in the tournament. The festival was unfortunately cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19.

The handball festival 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 developed and established in 2014 as part of Viborg Municipality’s event strategic 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.
