The original contract would have expired after the current season.
Managing Director Bob Hanning: "Bjarki fits into our club's strategy for the coming years. He is to become an integral part of the successes of Füchse Berlin."
Bjarki Már Elísson: "I am very happy that this has worked out. I was able to develop well here and am sure I can get even better. That is why I will continue to work with all my strength - for my private and sporting goals there is currently no better club for me, than the Füchse Berlin. "
The Icelandic national player, who came to Berlin from ThSV Eisenach in 2015, fights at the moment for a seat in the Icelandic World Championship squad. He started his career in the Icelandic club HK Kópavogur and has played 20 caps for the Icelandic national team.
