The second tier league organised by HFN and is sponsored by the Edo State Government, will have four teams (two each in the men and women’s category) gain promotion to play in the Prudent Energy Handball Premier League in 2023.

Meanwhile, HFN president Samuel Ocheho commended the Edo State Government for partnering with the federation in developing the game.
