Best Handball Fan Contest history
Throwback to the last two Best Handball Fan contests- 2016 and 2017!
Be8player is a project dedicated to fans. It aims to educate the fans about the power of friendship, support, and togetherness in handball. The main goal is to connect the fans with their favourite clubs and bring everyone together at the stands. Be8player emphasizes zero tolerance on violence and the importance of supporting the teams in a fair manner. Create lifelong memories, but also enjoy the moments that come! Everyone is equal at a handball match!
To reward and bring the fans even closer to everyone, Be8player has an annual Best Handball Fan Contest. It started back in 2016 when the fans sent us numerous photos of them cheering their teams, supporting at home and enjoy the matches in pretty much every way possible. We gave away jerseys of their favourite teams to the photos that received the most likes on Be8player Facebook. To make the whole thing even better, players also picked their favourites among the photos sent, and we managed to connect the fans with the players, again! The main prize included, of course, two all-inclusive tickets for the SEHA – Gazprom League Final 4 in Brest! We also gave away t-shirts, wristbands and a lot of other be8player merchandise! Csenge from Hungary was the Best Handball Fan in 2016!
In 2017, we started at the end of October and played together for almost two months. In the beginning, you told us what makes your team the best. You loved their spirit, the players, the songs and much more. The comments with the most likes progressed to the next round. We wanted to see every SEHA club represented in the Second round, so we had fans from all over the region participating in the Second round and winning prizes already.
Next, we wanted to see all the photos you have with your favourite handball players. We put them in one album and let the fans decide. Photos with the most likes entered the Third and final round of the contest, but the job was not finished.
Final round was very creative! Finalists had a task to send us their creative work. The only thing that mattered was that the work had something to do with SEHA – Gazprom League and handball. We received drawings, decorations, and portraits. It was up to the players to decide who did the best job. The main prize was a trip to the SEHA Final 4 in Skopje!
The prize went to Serbia to the fan of Dinamo from Pancevo, Nemanja Malicanin! What a SEHA December that was for him! It’s always nice to remember those moments of happiness and excitement and the days in front of us are bringing us much more! So, if you want to repeat Nemanja’s success and experience handball on the biggest handball event in the region join our ‘Best Handball Fan Contest vol 3’ and maybe you will win two all-inclusive tickets for the SEHA Final 4 and much more. Stay tuned because we are starting sooner than you think!
