Konzum d.o.o. Sarajevo is a proud sponsor of the Handball Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The sponsorship agreement was signed for the duration of one year in Zenica by Adnan Šteta, Executive director of trading in Konzum and Smajo Karačić, Chief Secretary of the Handball association of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

By signing this agreement, Konzum became the general sponsor for the National handball team of Bosnia and Herzegovina, who just started its qualifying tournament for the European championship.

Konzum wishes to support the progress of sports in the country, support the young talents and to promote Bosnia and Herzegovina, and therefore, after sponsoring football and basketball, it decided to support the handball team.

“As an association, we are trying to secure the funding and create an atmosphere in which our handball players will have the same working conditions as players do in other European countries. It’s difficult to find someone willing to invest in sports and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Konzum for recognizing our efforts.” Smajo Karačić, head secretary of Handball association of Bosnia and Herzegovina pointed out.

Bosna and Hercegovina is a country with a rich handball history. Popularity of handball is rising and it deserves Konzum's full support. Konzum will strengthen its friendship with the national handball team and it will also support the players who set a positive example and serve as role-models to younger generations.

“Supporting sports is an important segment of Konzum’s social responsibility and we are happy to contribute to further development of handball in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, said Adnan Šteta.
