Molten Corporation, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of competition quality sports balls, will provide the official game ball for the 2015 Women’s Handball World Championship in Denmark. This prestigious event will take place in Denmark from December 5 to 20, 2015 and marks the first time that Molten will provide the official game ball for the Women’s World Championship, following the success of the 2015 Men’s World Championship in Qatar in January.

The game ball combines Molten’s “X5000” design with the new custom Women’s Handball World Championship Denmark 2015 design. Created in collaboration with IHF, this custom designed ball was developed exclusively for this year’s Women’s World Championship and incorporates important elements of the championship’s brand identity. The X5000 is Molten’s top of the line model and features a unique surface structure, providing exceptional grip to improve ball control and accuracy. 

As an official IHF partner, Molten’s handball has been adopted as the official ball of the IHF and is used in all internationally competitions. In addition, numerous countries and regions throughout the world currently utilize the “X5000” Series Handball. Guided by its brand statement ‘for the real game,’ Molten Corporation will continue to develop and supply products with superb functionality and innovative design for the larger handball community.

■ Custom Game Ball Design for the Tournament
Inspired by the vibrant colors of the host country’s national flag, the official game ball was developed exclusively for the biennial tournament.
