Cologne, 11.08.2023 - Handball Germany is eagerly awaiting the 57th season of the LIQUI MOLY HBL and with it the new season of the Handball Fantasy Manager START7! After the strong demand in the previous season with over 30,000 app downloads, START7 is taking off again and offering users even more excitement, strategy and fun with new features.

New season - new stars

For the 2023/24 season, well-known handball stars, such as Flensburg's Simon Pytlick, Magdeburg playmaker Felix Claar or Kiel's Elias Ellefsen á Skipagotu, have once again found their way to the "strongest league in the world".

In addition to the updated squads and market values, the strategy game START7, which is based on the real events of the LIQUI MOLY Handball Bundesliga, also comes with new features and an English-language app version for the new season.

New season - new features

With the first matchday of the new season, START7 users will, for example, have access to the live scores of all LIQUI MOLY Handball Bundesliga matches directly in the app and will therefore be even closer to the action.

START7 offers its premium users even more opportunities to follow their own team's score development live during the match day.

In addition, the introduction of an award system increases the fun of the game, enhances the appeal of the game and offers managers further options to distinguish themselves and strengthen their team.

Frank Leibmann, Digital & Data Director at HBL GmbH: "By integrating the new features, we not only want to increase the fun for our existing community, but also convince even more fans of our handball fantasy game. The integration of LIQUI MOLY HBL live scores brings real-time action directly to our users' mobile devices, while the enhanced live scores and award system are sure to add even more competition and fun."
