Tokyo 2020 player replacements

All player replacements for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will appear here. This article will be updated throughout the event.

For the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the player replacement criteria differ from IHF events, i.e. in case of injury or special circumstances, each team is allowed to:

  • Replace one player with any player from the provisional list (‘list of 28’) up until the quarter-finals
  • Replace on one occasion a goalkeeper with another goalkeeper who is included in the provisional list (‘list of 28’) up until the final

For provisional lists (‘list of 28’) and the final 15-player squad list, please check the ‘Teams’ section on the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 mini-sites for the men’s and women’s tournaments.
