AndorraCoach: David Aguilar Cardona
In the past, Andorra played at the IHF Men's Emerging Championship twice, finishing 15th in 2015 and 14th two years later. The European side claimed one win in each tournament, beating Armenia and Albania.
Andorra also played at the 2021 Men's IHF/EHF Trophy, where they lost against both Cyprus and Bulgaria in the group stage before the 5/6 placement match against Azerbaijan was cancelled.
Now in Varna, they harbour hopes to get some positive results in Group A, where they face Malta and India. Notably, eight years ago, Andorra lost against Malta in the 13/14 Placement Match (25:36), but things have changed since then, so they are looking for better results.
The team's coach, David Aguilar Cardona, mainly relies on the players from Andorra's best club, Handball Club Serradells. Besides, five squad members represent Spanish clubs, while left wing Joel Brard plays for HBC Auxerrois in France and goalkeeper Felix Chillon Leach for Olse Merksem in Belgium.
