SPANISH SPORTS mantains alive one of the best teams in the sport of HANDBALL, in Spain & in all Europe, thanks to an agreement that saves CIUDAD REAL Handball Team. The current Spanish Cup champions, the 5 time ASOBAL Winners, World Club Champions twice, three times European Champions ...etc & etc, has been saved by economic bankruptcy & from disappearing totally from the sporting map thanks to ATLETICO DE MADRID, yes the Football Club.
|Ciudad Real Handball Team|
From next season CIUDAD REAL moves itself to the city of Madrid & will call itself BALONMANO ATLETICO DE MADRID. Atletico regains this way a Handball Division which it eliminated decades ago when the Gil family bought the Football Club. So, as of now, ATLETICO DE MADRID has a Football & Handball Club. The latter kicks of the season against FC Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup on the 4th of September.
Great to see Ciudad Real still in action & good to see Handball back in Madrid & with Atletico.
