Emil Ludwig Feuchtmann Perez

Emil Ludwig Feuchtmann Perez was born on 1 June 1983 in Punta Arenas, Chile, as he is known by his full name. He demonstrated his qualities as a handball player at an early age in the junior team of Universidad de Chile in Santiago – Chile. His first engagement abroad was at the age of 19, and between 2002 and 2003 at FC Sao Paulo, Brazil. Already in 2001 he received the squad for the Chilean national team. In the following years he lived for several years in Spain and was at several clubs under contract.

2003-2004 at CB Puertollano, 2004-2006 at CB Petrer, 2006-2007 at CB Huesca, 2007-2009 at CB Vinaros, 2008-2010 at CB Almoradi. In the 2009 season, he was in the 2nd Spanish League top scorer, which was his first personal highlight. Now successes succeed.

In the 2010 season, he was hired by the Austrian club SG Handball West Vienna, where he played until the end of the season. With the Chilean national team, he reached the 3rd place in the Pan American Games, which meant qualifying for the World Cup. At the 2011 World Cup he was voted MVP in the game against Slovakia.

At club level, the first appearance took place in Germany between 2011 and 2013, at HC Aschersleben. In 2012, he was with the Chilean national team in the Pan American Games as two years earlier, 3rd, whereby the team again qualified for the 2013 World Cup. Another personal highlight is the achieved 8th place at this World Cup in the scorer rating. He scored 40 goals from 65 attempts in seven games. He was able to use 9 of 11 penalty throws. He was also re-elected MVP in the game against Macedonia.

After the World Cup, Emil Feuchtmann moved within Germany to third division club HSC Bad Neustadt. In the national team followed a break due to various inconsistencies.

In 2015 he moved from HSC Bad Neustadt to the beautiful Bernese Oberland to Wacker Thun. At the World Championships in Qatar again, he reached the 23rd final rank with the team. After an adjustment phase in the first year at the club level, Emil Feuchtmann celebrated the first title in the 2016/2017 season; he became Swiss cup winner. In 2016, he also took part with the national team again in the Pan American Games and reached there the excellent 2nd final rank, which in turn meant the qualification for the 2017 World Cup in France. He reached with his team the 21st final rank. As at the 2015 World Cup, Chile is one of the fairest teams in the tournament.


At the end of the season 2016/2017 Emil will leave us for France. He has signed a contract with Grand Nancy Métropole Handball.
