Before the tournament, Antonio Antonov, member of the EHF Development Projects Committee and member of the National Academy of Sports in Sofia had a meeting with the Dean of the Jagodine Pedagogical Faculty and Prof. Zivorad Markovic, who is the Head of the Sports Pedagogical Department. The visit served to promote hockey and discuss the possibility to include hockey as a future academic subject and discipline at the university.
