On January 11, 2023, the 28th IHF Men´s World Championship will start with an opening match in Katowice, Poland. It is only one year to go to the start of the world championship.
“When Sweden and Poland together won the bid of the 28th Men´s World Championship in 2015, we felt that it was so long until the championship should start. But now, it is only one year left before everything starts with the opening match in Poland. And we hope that we will be able to deliver a championship with full stands filled with handball fans from all over the world,” says Krister Bergström, CEO of Handbolls-VM 2023 Sweden.
“The 28th Men´s World Championship will be the biggest event in the history of handball in Poland. We want to stick together with fans from all around the globe and looking forward to experiencing a great sport spectacle with full stands. We believe that WCh 2023 will be a great promotion for handball and all host nations, host cities and host regions in Poland and Sweden. Feel invited for the top handball event,” added Grzegorz Gutkowski, Tournament Director Handball WCh 2023 Poland.
