About the Foundation
Korfball World Foundation is established in 2014 and is based in The Netherlands.
Our mission is to support the growth of international korfball in such a way that the chance of becoming an Olympic sport increase. For this we see two tasks:
- Increase the international korfball level of some specific countries, so that there is more competition for the medal ranking in global events
- Increase the exposure and commercial value of korfball, so that it is an interesting sport for sponsors
These two factors are seen by us as the main points that make korfball likely to be incorporated in the Olympic Games.
To achieve our mission, we have various activities:
- Operate Korfball Academies in one or more countries, in order to find and improve talented korfball players for international korfball
- Support national korfball federations in strengthening their organisational structure
- Create and sell merchandise to expand the exposure of korfball and to make it part of the lifestyle of korfball enthusiasts
- Report on the main international korfball events in various ways, so that people are able to see and read more about the sport
Besides these primary activities, we also have more secondary activities:
- Organise international korfball events in specific locations to help countries get more international experience
- Organise events of korfball variants that expand into different target groups and lifestyles.
