The 2023 IHF World Men’s Handball Championship sees 32 of the best teams from around the world battling it out to be world champions in Poland and Sweden.

The tournament starts on 11 January with Olympic champions France taking on co-hosts Poland in Katowice. The final takes place in Stockholm on 29 January.

Denmark are the holders with Mikkel Hansen and co bidding for a hat-trick of titles having lost out to France in the final at Tokyo 2020 in 2021.

Sweden were beaten finalists two years ago in Egypt with Spain taking third place and France fourth.

There is an extra incentive for the teams as the winners will seal an automatic berth at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This will go to the runners-up if France – already qualified as hosts – emerge victorious.
