The 28th IHF Men’s World Championship is hosted by Poland and Sweden. Tickets for the matches scheduled in the four Polish venues will be on sale from 18 March onwards.

The preliminary round, which contains eight groups of four teams each, will be played in two venues in Poland, with Katowice and Krakow hosting two groups each. The other four groups will take place in Sweden: in Gothenburg, Jönköping, Kristianstad and Malmö.

The host countries had the right to choose where they will play in the group phase, as Poland picked Katowice and will play in Group A, while Sweden elected to play in Gothenburg, in Group C.

Each host country could assign a team to a host city, therefore Norway will play in Group F in Krakow, Spain are due to play in Group B, also in Krakow. Denmark, the reigning world champions, were assigned to Group H in Malmö, just 12 kilometers away from their border.

Further assignments of teams will be made in due course.

Katowice, Krakow, Gothenburg and Malmö will also host the main round groups, while the President’s Cup is scheduled to take place in Plock, Poland.

The “Ergo Arena” in Gdansk, Poland, is due to host two quarter-finals and a semi-final, with the other two quarter-finals, a semi-final and the medal games set to be played in the Tele2 Arena in Sweden’s capital Stockholm.
