    Poland and Czech Republic to Host 2031 Women’s Handball World Championship

    Polish Handball Federation revealed that Poland and the Czech Republic will jointly host the 2031 Women’s Handball World Championship. The decision, ratified by the IHF, marks another significant milestone for handball in Central Europe.

    Unwavering Bid Success

    The bid, championed by both nations, received initial approval from the IHF earlier, signaling a promising trajectory for the tournament’s location. The culmination came after a rigorous presentation by the Polish and Czech handball delegations during the IHF Council meeting in Creteil, France.

    The championship will unfold across three cities: Katowice, Sosnowiec, and Brno, with the final rounds, including semi-finals and medal matches, taking place in Katowice’s iconic Spodek Arena. This multi-city approach promises an electrifying atmosphere and wide accessibility for fans across the region.

    Continued Handball Legacy

    Poland’s successful bid underscores its growing stature as a premier host for international handball events. From the European Men’s Handball Championship in 2016 to the upcoming Men’s U21 World Championship in 2025, Poland remains a cornerstone of handball excellence on the global stage.
