The Badge of Merit is awarded to individuals who made an extraordinary contribution to the development of handball.

Levels[edit]

The Badge of Merit is awarded at three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

IHF Bronze Badge of Merit[edit]

The Badge of Merit in Bronze is awarded to individuals who made an extraordinary contribution to the development of handball within their national and/or continental federation.

The Badge of Merit consists of the Council’s insignia with a half garland in bronze. It is awarded by the continental federations at the request of their committee or the member federations. Every year, the IHF Council establishes a quota for such awards. The final date for the submission by the continental federations of their list of awards to the Head Office is 30 October of each year. This list is also sent to the Council for information.

The list of awards must contain the surname, given name, date of birth and nationality of the recipient and a brief reasoning.

IHF Silver Badge of Merit[edit]

The Badge of Merit in Silver is awarded to individuals who have worked with merit for many years within the sport of handball and/or have made a particular contribution to the organisation of IHF competitions.
