Norwegian women’s beach handball team fined 1,500 euro for wearing shorts instead of bikini bottoms

The European Handball Federation (EHF) has issued a EUR 1,500 fine to the Norwegian women’s handball team due to the team not wearing bikini bottoms at the European Beach Handball Championships.

The EHF confirmed a EUR 1,500 fine (EUR 150 per player) due to “improper clothing.”

Norway’s handball team wore shorts during a match against Spain in Bulgaria. According to the rules, women should wear bikini bottoms during competitions.

“The Disciplinary Commission at the Beach Handball EURO 2021 has dealt with a case of improper clothing.

“In the bronze medal game against Spain on Sunday, the team of Norway played with shorts that are not according to the Athlete Uniform Regulations defined in the IHF Beach Handball Rules of the Game,” the EHF noted in a statement.

Support from the NHF

Norway’s Handball Federation (NHF) announced it would pay the fine for its players. The NHF also backed the Norwegian team in a post to the team’s Instagram page.

“We are very proud of these girls who are at the European Championships in beach handball. They raised their voice and told us that enough is enough.

“We are the Norwegian Handball Federation, and we stand behind you and support you. We will continue to fight to change the international regulations for attire so that players can play in the clothing they are comfortable with.”
