Caisse d’Épargne takes road to Paris 2024 with FFHB

Banking group Caisse d’Épargne has extended its backing of the French Handball Federation (FFHB) through to the 2024 summer Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris.

Caisse d’Épargne first partnered with FFHB in 2010 and will now continue to support the federation’s men’s, women’s and youth teams as a major sponsor.

Caisse d’Épargne has a strong presence in handball, having sponsored the 2017 Men’s World Championship, which France hosted. It will also support the European Handball Federation’s 2018 European Women’s Handball Championship, which will take place in Brest, Montbéliard, Nancy, Nantes and Paris from November 29 to December 16.
