The Nether­lands Handball Fed­er­a­tion (NHV) was fined é300,000 ($396,600), plus é250,000 to cover ad­di­tional costs and ex­penses, and sus­pended from host­ing any Euro­pean Handball Fed­er­a­tion events for three years, un­til the end of 2016, for its late with­drawal from or­gan­is­ing the 2012 Women’s EHF Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship. The EHF pointed out that the Nether­lands had been awarded the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in 2008 only to hand back the event in June 2012, shortly be­fore the draw for the com­pe­ti­tion. ‘Fi­nan­cial and or­gan­i­sa­tional rea­sons’ were cited for the move and Ser­bia was sub­se­quently cho­sen ahead of 10 other na­tions to host the event.
