The Limburgse Handbal Dagen / Limbourg Handball Days is one of the most well organized handball tournaments in Europe. The tournament lasts for 3 days with teams from Europe, Africa and Asia and has been successfully organized since 1988 in the cities of Sittard, Geleen and Beek.

History[edit]

It all started in the spring of 1988, the year that HV Sittardia forty years existed. They wanted to organise an international tournament in a celebration of this anniversary. The periode of the planned tournament in September, before the start of the Dutch competition, was too short for a proper organisation. That's why the committee decided to organize the tournament in the periode between Christmas and New Year and after the interest in a co-organisation of Blauw Wit and V&L, the Limburgse Handbal Dagen were born.[1]
