The following country was selected as substitute nation by the IHF Council and will be awarded the right to host the respective 2020 Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournament on condition that one of the three above-mentioned nations qualifies directly for the Olympic Games at the 2020 European Championship or in case any difficulties occur in the preparation phase:
