In a major boost to the sport, Premier Handball League (PHL) launched Golden Eagles Uttar Pradesh, as the new franchise by South East Asia’s leading automotive parts solution company, Pavna Group.
Golden Eagles Uttar Pradesh is owned by the Pavna Group, a Rs 500 crore business house involved in sports, manufacturing and education with a presence in India as well.
“We are delighted to welcome the Pavna Group to the PHL family as this development bolsters our aim to rebuild Indian handball and make it a commercial product where it benefits not only the players and coaches but also the stakeholders and brands. With the right intent and approach, handball has the ability to attract brands as well as investors and we are confident that the PHL blueprint will help to give a complete makeover to the sport. We are glad that committed industry leaders are finding business opportunities and gains in the Sport,” said the CEO of Bluesport Entertainment, Manu Agrawal.

“Handball is a popular sport and most schools in India have included it as a part of their sports curriculum. But with time its popularity has faded. We intend to ensure handball regains its glory and by joining hands with PHL, we hope to achieve this goal. While we, as a company, have been invested in sports equipment manufacturing for a long time, we wish to make a difference in the lives of the youth by bringing them closer to the game,” said Managing Director of Pavna Group of Industries, Swapnil Jain.
The first season of PHL, which is set to take place next year will provide Indian players with the opportunity to rub shoulders with top international players from across the world and enhance their skills.
