The 2019 IHF World Men's Handball Championship, was the 26th event hosted by the International Handball Federation and held in Denmark and Germany from 10 to 27 January 2019. This was the first IHF World Men's Handball Championship to include more than one host country.[2]

A unified Korean team participated for the first time.[3]

Denmark, in a clean sweep, won their first title by defeating Norway 31–22 in the final.[4] This was Norway's second final in a row. France captured the bronze medal after a 26–25 win over Germany.[5]

The tournament set a new spectator record with 906,283, helped by the fact that there were two home teams.[citation needed]

Bidding process[edit]

Denmark/Germany presented a bid and were up against competitors from Poland and Slovakia/Hungary. The International Handball Federation announced on 28 October 2013 that Denmark/Germany would be awarded the 2019 World Men's Handball Championship.

Format[edit]

This edition saw a format change back to the one used in 2011. The 24 teams were split into four groups, in which the first three teams qualified for the main round. The bottom three teams of each group will play the Presidents' Cup to determine the positions from 13–24. In the main round, the 12 teams were split into two groups. Their points from the preliminary round against the other qualified team were carried over, and the best two placed teams in each main round group qualified for the semifinals, while the third- and fourth ranked teams played placement matches. From the semifinals on, a knockout system was used.

Venues[edit]

Following is a list of all venues and host cities which was used.[6] All venues have a capacity of more than 10,000 spectators. The final was held in Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, Denmark.

Squads[edit]

Referees[edit]

The referee pairs were selected on 25 October 2018.[12]

Preliminary round[edit]

The provisional schedule was confirmed on 28 June 2018 and the final schedule was announced on 31 October 2018.[13][14][15]

Tiebreakers[edit]

In the group stage, teams are ranked according to points (2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). After completion of the group stage, if two or more teams have scored the same number of points, the ranking will be determined as follows:[16]

  1. Highest number of points in matches between the teams directly involved;
  2. Superior goal difference in matches between the teams directly involved;
  3. Highest number of goals scored in matches between the teams directly involved (or in the away match in case of a two-team tie);
  4. Superior goal difference in all matches of the group;
  5. Highest number of plus goals in all matches of the group;

If the ranking of one of these teams is determined, the above criteria are consecutively followed until the ranking of all teams is determined. If no ranking can be determined, a decision shall be obtained by IHF through drawing of lots.

During the group stage, only criteria 4–5 apply to determine the provisional ranking of teams.

All times are local (UTC+1).
