FFHB heads into Handball World Championship with new sponsor

Liquefied petroleum gas supplier Butagaz has entered into a partnership with the French Handball Federation (FFHB).

Butagaz will serve as an official partner of France’s men’s and women’s national teams. The length of the agreement was not disclosed.

As part of the deal, Butagaz’s logo will feature on the right shoulder of France’s jerseys, and on the front left of the teams’ shorts.

The partnership comes as France prepares to host the men’s World Championship from January 11-29. Defending champion France will be seeking to pick up its sixth title when the action gets underway next week.
