WCHC - International Domestic Handball Newswires II

Postby Quebec and Shingoryeo » Wed Sep 01, 2021 7:24 am

OOC: So let's get this going...hopefully the start of something new! 7 years have been too long of a wait.
No deadline yet, but sometime after the WCQ would be solid.

The World Club Handball Championship (WCHC)

Original Newswire


The World Handball Club Championship (WCHC) is the international club handball's championship tournament, intended to pit the best clubs against each other. After the initial editions of success in the its first eleven editions, the domestic handball scene has seen long years of international absence. Quebec and Shingoryeo, after discussions made with several nations over the previous half-year, have decided to revive the domestic competitions in handball, where the revived World Club Handball Championships (WCHC) were introduced under a new format. Barring the dissolution of the nation and its handball governing body, the WCHC Trophy will be based in Quebec City, Quebec and Shingoryeo.




ENTRY SUBMISSION RULES


As with past submissions, each nation will be allocated four entries to the WCHC under the domestic league system, provided they have qualified under sporting merit. One puppet per user will be allowed, after being declared by the master nation. Multiassociational leagues will be allocated up to eight entries, with a single nation allowed up to five entries.

The champion of the World Club Handball Championship (WCHC) will be given an automatic qualification slot for the next cycle's WCHC. Should they fail to qualify, extra spot will be awarded to them.

Samplestan (XYZ) qualifiers
master nation of Sampleland (ZYX)
WCHC: 1093 Sampleton, Sampleville Tigers, Sampleville HC, Samplestein Victory


TOURNAMENT FORMAT


At this point in time, I am still figuring out how much demand we could possibly generate from domestic handball, so figuring out an exact format can be trickier than expected. With this in mind, I will suggest following formats:

  • If 24 or less (16~24) teams are entered, there will be a 16-team group stage. There will be qualification tournaments or play-offs for the teams to make the group stage. After the final 16 teams are determined, they will be divided into 4 groups of 4 teams, where they will play on a home-and-away group stage. Top 2 teams on each group will then qualify for the Quarterfinals and onward.
  • If 32 or less (25-32) teams are entered, there will be a 24-team group stage. There will be qualification tournaments or play-offs for the teams to make the group stage. After the final 24 teams are determined, they will be divided into 4 groups of 6 teams, where they will play on a home-and-away group stage. 4 highest finishing teams on each group will then qualify for the Last 16 and onward.
  • If 32 or more (32+) teams are entered, there will be a 32-team group stage. There will be qualification tournaments or play-offs for the teams to make the group stage. After the final 32 teams are determined, they will be divided into 8 groups of 4 teams, where they will play on a home-and-away group stage. Top 2 teams on each group will then qualify for the Last 16 and onward.

The playoffs, beginning from Last 16 or Quarterfinals, will be single elimination. In the round of 16 and the quarterfinals, the teams will play a home-and away series, while the Final Four will be played on single-match basis under a neutral venue.

FINAL FOUR SITE BIDS


Final Four Bids from a participating nation will be considered for the World Club Handball Championships. It is strongly recommended that the bids use the following form underneath:

Samplandia (TLA) venue bids
WCHC Final Four: Samplopolis Arena, Samplopolis
Insert description here


A site bid should include the arena name, the location, seating capacity, and a short description. Pictures are recommended but not a must. All bids will be considered, with the most qualitative bid being selected for the final four, though any site bid that does not meet the qualitative standard will be rejected.

If there is no bid that's considered suitable for the final four, the default site for the WCHC Final Four will be Silver Box, Montreal, Quebec and Shingoryeo.

Questions and suggestions about the thread should be sent to this nation via telegram, or enquired on Discord.

Ligue-Boreale's opening up, the WCHC's return a good sign for many things to come


Kershaun Allen

QUEBEC CITY, CAPITALE-NATIONALE - Today, ahead of the Quebec-Gatchingerrak Union qualification match for the Handball World Cup 24, to be held in Quebec and Sylestone, Joanna Wex, president of the Quebecois Handball Federation (QHF) and the World Club Handball Championships (WCHC) chair, officially announced the opening of the Ligue-Boreale to foreign imports.

The announcement, year in making, was viewed by many handball watchers across the Multiverse as the latest of the wave of news that spurred across the sporting Multiverse over the past year, after men's and women's handball tournament of the 2050 Summer Olympics held in Bunjil, Electrum. In mostly confirming the rumours, Wex announced that the Ligue-Boreale sides will be allowed to include three import players, by definition those without a Quebecois passport or residency (latter requiring six calendar years or number of seasons equalling to six calendar years), in 19-team squads. While those of Quebecois Commonwealth have played in the Ligue-Boreale (and its predecessor, Handball Bundesliga) for decades, this will indeed be the first time that foreign handballers neither of Quebecois nor Commonwealth origins be allowed to play in Quebec and Shingoryeo.

'I personally find this a historic moment, especially as we return to globalisation in multiverse handball,' said Wex, in an interview with worldofhandball.multi. 'And perhaps historic correction as well. On the first two decades of this 21st century, many handball leagues across the multiverse were open, as the likes of Polarian Elitserien, the Cotdelapomais Superliga and not to mention the Cyborg Holland Varsity League actively welcomed talents across the world. And while the WCHC's absence over past 30 years, combined with financial and political troubles of many active participants, have limited the international contact, I feel that we are going to see the good times come back.'

When questioned about whether this serves as a response to the competitive question over challenges faced by other leagues opening up, and the signing of three Quebecois players to Bollonich, she decided to go around with the comment. 'It is a good thing that we see more players going abroad and vice versa, and we share that sentiment with those of the national team program as well,' said Wex. 'Sure, quite a few of our national teamers have already or will be heading to the Superliga or Bollonich, but from what's being said and announced by individual teams, Ligue-Boreale sides are also signing those from last two men's olympic gold medalists in Graintfjall and Bollonich. So no, this doesn't change much about how competitive Ligue-Boreale or the national teams are.'

It is a tough, but understandable position taken by Wex, the 2020 Centralis and Nassau Bay games gold medalist. While the preferred direction may depend, it is universally agreed that internationalisation of the leagues, both home and abroad, is in the best interest of handball. If anything, it has for decades shared the same problems as its wintry equivalent, volleyball, in that both are looking to become more internationally active after decades of absence on domestic scale. While there have been attempts in bringing back both sports on domestic circuits, such as past opening up of Mytanar and Savojar handball leagues to foreign players, the lack of international initiatives since, most strongly found in 3 decades of no WCHC, and the lack of the VCL in 20 years, have led into a particular lethargy on the scene for both domestic sports.

That has certainly brought a particular challenge to the home context as well considering the rise of basketball as the number one indoor sport in Quebec and Shingoryeo, with cheaper cost to play and the international successes, not to mention decades of basketball stars being icons of their own. It was around the declining years of Wex's own career with the Grim Reapers and Montreal Koreana HC, that Riley Jeon-Keane and Allison Dubois had stepped up as not just basketball icons, but national symbols too. While volleyball's continued to maintain international successes even with domestic absences, and the QOVO's rivalry with Gatchingerrak Superliga, hockey and handball have seen drops in television and participation, and overall increase in apathy due to poor international results marked by disputes between players' associations, leagues and their respective associations.

But while handball has struggled, it is possible for it to quickly regain the numbers of old. The multi-tier aspect of the professional handball circuit in Quebec and Shingoryeo, where 12 teams play in the Ligue-Boreale and 14 to the Ligue-Nordique, mean that there is generally a wider outreach in the sport. This, with men and women playing in the same league, makes it easier to handle developmental phases for the national teams as well. The league's competitiveness problem, while a constant peeve, isn't as bad as you'd think - with CSKA Quebec and Montreal Koreana, similar to their basketball divisions, not being as dominant in handball as they'd often think. Quebecois Handball Federation, unlike the past precedences in Savojarna and Mytanija a decade ago, are concerned less about over-commercialisation of the sport, mostly because the Quebecois state's had the pro (and before that semi-pro) league running for decades and people still remembered the days of active international circuit for those leagues. So the small opening of windows, while seeming huge, looks fairly small.

Now, whether the internationalisation movement can hold into something consistent for both WCHC, Ligue-Boreale and the other leagues, remain to be seen. But nobody can ignore the importance of such gestures, and while it will take time, it can mark for something big that has already started with volleyball a while ago - Mytanar Top League, Bollonishian Volleyball League, and the QOVO leagues being three active ones there - and perhaps a sign for bright future.

You take one look at the results and it’s pretty damn obvious which side is the best one out of all of them. With the likes of Lachlan Fosbrook, Samantha Hussey, Lole Strezlecki and Charles Phillip in the side, the Chamberley Crocodiles had to be a favourite heading into the first instalment of the Sylestone Handball Intranational Tournament (SHIT), created due to a sudden climb in handball interest throughout the nation, as well as the creation of the first World Club Handball Championship (WCHC) in aeons. Twelve teams from ten cities, with two from Avondale and Chamberley, came together to fight it out for four spots in the WCHC, a club tournament that is expected to be dominated by Savojar, Bollonischian and Quebecois leagues. However, being internationally ranked second in the world after the most recent Handball World Cup, the SHIT appears to stand a chance.

Original plans laid out by the Sylestone Handball Association of Teams (SHAT) only had eight teams, but with the Chamberley, Betham and Avondale clubs looking too strong, sides from Kirton and Dodle were created alongside an extra club in Avondale and Chamberley. This put the franchise count up to twelve and while some critics suggested this was too many, the SHAT stuck with it.

But the creation of the Chamberley Snakes alongside the Crocodiles did little to nullify the strength of the latter’s side, still going into the tournament as favourites, despite being closely matched by the likes of the Betham Sunrisers and possibly the Sentient Sapients, Cleorough Thorns and Avondale Avengers. Four of those five sides were expected to qualify for the WCHC, while no other sides appeared to have the outfit to really challenge the title, although some, such as the Pesfield Poopers and Chamberley Snakes, appeared to have a chance at the top four. But still, despite the top-heavy nature of the league, crowds packed in for the first match between the Avondale Avengers and Sentient Sapients at the 15,000-seater Avondale Arena.

They were not disappointed, either, with a thrilling match between the Sentient side and their Avengers. In the end, the Sapients would come out on top by a mere two goals to kick the league off with an enthralling start.

But right from the end of the very first matchday, the Chamberley Crocodiles would sit upon the top of the table and never, ever dropping down further. They achieved this with a surprisingly easy 27-16 whacking of a decent-looking Halpenley Scorchers outfit to set the tone for what would be a brilliant season for the franchise, with only two draws and three losses to go alongside their 17 wins, finishing on 36 points, six ahead of their nearest chasers. They began with three wins on the trot, following the 27-16 victory over the Scorchers with a 32-21 win over arguably the weakest side in the league, the Kirton Cavaliers and a much tougher 34-27 win against the Pesfield Poopers. It was on matchday four that they suffered their first loss, with the Avondale Avengers coming from behind to take out a 24-22 victory in front of a home crowd in raptures.

On matchday eight, the Crocodiles lost their second game, this one a shock home loss to crosstown rivals Chamberley Snakes, allowing the Betham Sunrisers and Pesfield Poopers to catch up, both sides now a single point behind the Crocodiles.

But from there, the Crocodiles took the lead, moving four points in front on matchday twelve and in the final ten games, did not allow the lead to drop below that number. Avondale Avengers continued to provide issues for the Crocodiles, with the capital side holding the Crocodiles to a 28-all draw at home despite residing in sixth place, although they were only a win away from Pesfield Poopers in second place as the league began to heat up. The Crocodiles then avenged their loss against their cross-town rivals with a 34-23 drumming and despite an earlier loss to the Sunrisers on matchday seventeen, still remained well ahead of the pack.

Their position as the league winners was confirmed on matchday twenty, with a six-point lead over the Avondale Avengers following the Crocodiles’ victory over the Snakes. This meant that if anyone but the Chamberley side were to win, the Avengers, the only side with a head-to-head advantage over the Crocodiles, would have to win all three of their games.

The Crocodiles, with remaining games against the Cleorough Thorns and bottom two sides Dodle Mountaineers and Dunkirk Daredevils, needed to really shit the bed to even give the Avengers a chance of catching up. They had a good chance of winning their first two games, against the eighth-placed Halpenley Scorchers and tenth-placed Kirton Cavaliers, but their final match against the Pesfield Poopers would be the killer. It was an extremely unlikely circumstance, but not impossible.

But despite the Avengers’ 32-27 victory over the Scorchers, the Crocodiles ensured they would take out the title for the inaugural SHIT, with the Cleorough Thorns unable to stop the Chamberley franchise as they romped home to a 29-21 victory. So despite playing a side well under full-strength for the following matches against the Dodle Mountaineers and the Dunkirk Daredevils, a respective draw and a win ensured that the Crocodiles would finish matchday 22 off with a six-point lead and an extremely comfortable championship.

Despite the Crocodiles dominating the entire season from start to finish, the true challenge for progression to the WCHC appeared to be spicy at the halfway mark. With the Crocodiles in the lead on 18 points, the Sunrisers on 16 and the Poopers on 15, the top three seemed to be a bit ahead of everyone else, although things could change. But three teams - the Avondale Avengers, Cleorough Thorns and Avondale Stars, were all in fourth to sixth place, all on twelve points each. A good sign for an intriguing final few games to see who could lock down that spot.

By matchday fifteen, things were even tighter, with the Sunrisers and Poopers both dropping big games, ensuring only three points separated second and seventh place, with the Sapients jumping up into the mix with three wins on the trot. However, by matchday eighteen, the Avengers had jumped up into second, equal on 23 points with the Poopers, with the Sunrisers hot on their heels on 22. But the rest of the group had dropped off, with the Thorns and Stars both on 20, a win behind the Sunrisers, and the Sapients on 19. Maybe it wasn’t going to be so interesting, after all.

Yeah, it wasn’t. With one matchday to go, the Sunrisers had climbed to a four-point lead over the Avondale Stars, confirming the top four sides before the final matchday had even been completed. With the winner already known and the qualifiers for the WCHC, the finale wasn’t as good as it could have been, but the four sides had deserved it and played far better than anyone else.

Overall, though, it was an impressive, engaging season and well worth the effort put in by the SHAT. The skills performed by many players were certainly acceptable for a nation with the some of the world’s best. For many clubs, such as the Cleorough Thorns and the Sentient Sapients, it was a poor season, while for franchises like any of the top four sides and even those as low as the Kirton Cavaliers in tenth, were indeed satisfied with their team performances. But in the end, there can only be one winner, and three other sides who brought success to their supporters, as the Chamberley Crocodiles, Betham Sunrisers, Avondale Avengers and the Pesfield Poopers moved onto the international stage.

2051-52 Gatchingerrak Superliga Season


Gatchingerrak Union of Rushmori nations, shortened as the Gatchingerrak Union, is a cultural and political alliance of four countries of the Quebecois Commonwealth located in mid-southern Rushmore (Norrskie Zasousti, Norrehavn, Gatchinovo and Novopetrograd). The three kingdoms and the citystate, while independent nations of own, do have the Gatchingerrak Union as a way to establish their common zone, where their main goals are to advance co-operation in military, cultural, economic and energy matters. It shares land border with Vaugania and Norrhem to the west, while bits of the east touch Phoenigetzusta. Combined population of the union are estimated to be around 81 million.

While its trio of nations have always fought with one another for centuries, Gatchingerrak Union is a culturally diverse nation with growing importance outside to that of the Quebecois Commonwealth. Its population is ethnically diverse, with the eastern, Novopetrogradian half of the realms primarily Slavic, while the Western half is divided to primarily Nordic Norrehavn on north and slavic Norrskie Zasousti on the south. Somewhere in middle of the lake, which faces all of the three nations, stands the island that is nowadays known as the citystate of Gatchinovo, the ancient place known for its significance on trades and diplomacy among the Rushmori realms of the Quebecois Commonwealth. It is where the Accord between the 4 states were signed in year 2030 (around the time of WC78), to promise co-prosperity among the rivalling states whose cooperation is needed more than ever. Its economy is a mix of natural resources and heavy manufacturing for it.

A no stranger to international sport, Gatchingerrak Union does have a past history of international football and hockey, where its western realms were represented as Norrehavn. It has hosted a Copa Rushmori and a World Cup of Hockey, and both sports are extremely popular. Handball is a popular sport for both men and women across most of the Union, but in particular the northern two-thirds of the nation where handball and indoor sports are readily played. The dualsex Gatchingerrak Superliga enjoys solid popularity, especially in Norrehavn, where the quality and popularity of volleyball have not been great in the recent half-century, but also in the eastern nations of Novopetrograd and the Gatchinovo citystate, where their popularity is outpaced by volleyball but the sport endures with little trouble. The league enjoys decent parity, with the championship usually contended by both Nyhavn clubs, Fakel Gatchinovo and Armada Petrograd, while the historic powerhouses Azovskiye Medvedi and BoIFK have struggled a bit more to increasing competition in the recent years. With the recent openings of foreign players in the handball leagues across the multiverse, which have allowed the readily exchanges of handball stars between the Union and other nations (usually this means Quebec and Shingoryeo, and other Quebecois Commonwealth nations, but also includes others), as well as the third-place finish for the Seven Stars on the Handball World Cup 24, the league holds great financial promise in future-time.

Procedural Notes

  • All entries were accepted.
  • The late entries from Bollonich, Gatchingerrak Union, Savojarna, and Sylestone were accepted.
  • There are twenty-eight entries from seven nations, with twenty entries from ranked associations per the Handball World Cup. While the WCHC is not governed under the HWC, the relatively intimate nature that exist between the two competitions would mean that the associations with history in HWC better be given priorities.
  • Thus, with this in mind, significant part of bonus for scorination were given to the clubs belonging to five associations who have participated in the most recent HWC as well. Those are Bollonich, Gatchingerrak Union, Quebec and Shingoryeo, Savojarna and Sylestone. For the purpose of this competition, the clubs belonging to the five associations will be marked as ranked associations and given preliminary ranking points into overall skill points. The WCHC continues to recommend all participants who submit their entries to sign up to the most recent edition of Handball World Cup whenever possible.

This cycle of WCHC has seen the continued success of Sylestonian teams on the domestic stage after their 2nd-place finish in the Handball World Cup, with three teams making the quarterfinals and two of them in the Final Four. The least expected part, however, was the Pesfield Poopers' victory, as they survived an extra-time thriller over the fellow fourth-finisher in Akusha Rovers to win the second straight handball final between Sylestone and Bollonich.
