In a few months the 22nd IHF Women’s Handball World Championship will be played in Denmark at a giant handball celebration that stretches from Næstved in the east to Herning in the west and from Frederikshavn in the north to Kolding in the south.
For the upcoming tournament Santander Consumer Bank, Nordic, which is part of the Spanish Banco Santander, has entered into an exciting collaboration with the IHF, which makes them official event partner.
"A handball world championship on Danish soil is a fantastic event, and the interest in women's handball is growing rapidly in both Denmark and other Nordic countries. Therefore, we are both very happy and proud that we as EVENT sponsor can support such an arrangement, which will undoubtedly be a big handball festival. It is important for us to find a platform where we get the best possible reach to our customers. We are confident that we found one of the best opportunities with this cooperation on the World Championship 2015 to get in contact and start up dialogues with both our existing and new customers," says Bo Jakobsen, CEO of Santander Consumer Bank Denmark.

World Cup 2015 will help to strengthen awareness of Santander Consumer Bank both locally and at a Nordic level and is therefore a perfect partner for us - both communicatively and commercially," says Bo Jakobsen.
