The 2013 World Men's Handball Championship was the 23rd World Men's Handball Championship, an international handball tournament that took place in Spain from 11 to 27 January 2013. This was the first time Spain hosted the World Men's Handball Championship, becoming the twelfth country to host the competition.

Spain won the title, beating Denmark in the final 35–19.

Venues[edit]

Games in Madrid were scheduled to be played in the Madrid Arena but on 1 November 2012, five young people were killed in a human stampede during a Halloween party. The venue was subsequently closed because of the judicial investigation and the IHF changed the location of games to Caja Mágica.[1]

Final[edit]

The final match, watched by 19,500 people, was played at the Palau Sant Jordi hall in Barcelona.[13] Denmark entered the final as the only unbeaten team during the tournament, having won all eight matches they previously played. Host nation Spain won seven of their eight matches before the final, losing only to Croatia in the final match in the group phase.

Spain won their second World Men's Handball Championship, beating Denmark 35–19.[13] While in the early minutes of the game the teams were closely matched, Spain played tough defense, limited Denmark's scoring chances and went on a scoring run to end the first half leading 18–10.[14] The Spanish team then increased their lead in the second half, outscoring Denmark 17–9 to close out the game. It was the third World Championship final that Denmark lost, having also been defeated in 1967 and 2011.[13][15]
