The 10th IKF World Korfball Championship were held in the Belgian cities of Ghent, Tielen and Antwerp in 2015. Ghent and Tielen hosted the first and second round matches, whilst the placing matches and finals were all held in the Lotto Arena in Antwerp.

This tournament also acts as the qualification tournament for Korfball at the World Games 2017. Seven teams will qualify for the World Games, including first all non-European teams finishing in the top 11. As such, at least one and maximum six non-European teams will qualify. Then, the remaining slots will be filled by the top European teams in this competition, with the exception of Poland which have already qualified as host country of the World Games 2017.[1]

The International Korfball Federation chose to award the hosting rights for the tournament to Belgium on 4 November 2011. The only other hosting candidate was New Zealand, who planned to host the tournament in Wellington.[2]

Second round[edit]

All times listed are Central European Time (UTC+01)

The top two teams of each group in the first round advanced to the pools for the top 8th places (pools E and F), while the other teams move into pools G and H which will determine positions 9 to 16. In each second round pool the top two will advance to a finals playoff for the top positions, with the bottom two teams dropping into the playoffs for the bottom positions. During the second round, all matches will still be played in Ghent and Tielen, but due to the tournament structure, all teams that played in Ghent in round 1 will now play in Tielen and vice versa.
