The Men's and Women's National Teams of USA Team Handball will take on Canada in the 2018 Pan American Games Qualifying Match on Sunday, September 2, 2018 at Beard Eaves Memorial Coliseum at Auburn University. The winner of the home and away series (Sept. 2 in Auburn, AL and Sept. 5 in Montreal, CAN) will be the North American representative in the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru! The Pan-Am winner qualifies for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo!

The Women's game starts at 3:00 pm and the Men's game starts at 5:00 pm. Admission is free! The games consist of two 30 minute halves and typically last about an hour. You’ll see 20-30 goals scored per team in this fast-paced, action-packed event!

USATH is partnering with the East Alabama Food Bank for a day of giving back to the community to help feed those with food insecurity. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate upon entry to the game. Food will be collected in barrels located at the main entrance to the Coliseum on the east side adjacent to the parking lot. The event is free and open to the public and doors will open at 2:00 pm.

Members of the Auburn-Opelika Club are invited to be ball girls and boys to help wipe the floor and collect game balls courtside during the games! Please contact me, Kristin Roberts at kar0032@auburn.edu by August 1 if you are interested in being a ball girl/boy (limited to 8 per game), and if you would like to do the women’s/3:00 game or the men’s/5:00 game. Please wear your Auburn Opelika Handball Club shirt. Please indicate if you and a friend or sibling prefer to be paired together (2 on each of the 4 corners). If your friend/sibling is not yet a member of AOHC, they can register on our membership page.

All Auburn Opelika Handball Club Members are invited to play handball at halftime of the women's and men's games! Please arrive in the stands by 3:15 pm to play during the women's halftime and by 5:15 pm to play during the men's halftime.

See you all on September 2 to cheer on Team USA!!!
