Further distribution channels for these statistics were the official EHF EURO 2018 app and social media, where they created thousands of likes and shares.
It allowed fans and spectactors alike to experience more about the players, their achievements on the court and the pace of the game and last but not least get in conversation with each other about these fascinating insights.
