After A Fine For Shorts The Norwegian Handball Federation Will Fight For Players Rights

After being fined 1,500 euros, the Norwegian Handball Federation has vowed to continue fighting for the right for its players to wear shorts.
During the European Beach Handball Championships in Varna, Bulgaria, Norway’s players were penalized with “improper dress” because they wore shorts instead of the traditional bikini bottoms.
The fine imposed by the European Handball Federation sparked outrage.
“The disciplinary panel at the Beach Handball Euro 2021 has dealt with a instance of unsuitable apparel,” the EHF said in a statement.
“The Norwegian squad wore shorts that did not comply with the athlete uniform restrictions stipulated in the IHF Beach Handball rules of the game in the bronze medal game versus Spain on Sunday.”
“The disciplinary commission decided to impose a fine of 150 euros each player, totaling 1,500 euros,” the NHF said.
“We are really proud of these girls who raised their voices and shouted enough is enough during the European Championships!” the NHF wrote on Twitter.
“The National Heart Foundation stands with you and supports you.”
We’ll keep fighting together to reform the restrictions about attire so that people can play in whatever clothes they like.”
