Key highlights of the day: Spain 2021 throws off

Bienvenidos a España! Or Welcome to Spain! The wait is finally over and the 25th IHF Women’s World Championship will throw off today, with 108 games scheduled over the next 19 days, in what promises to be a vintage edition of the competition.

We will be here, of course, to guide you through all the games, providing exclusive interviews, insights and all the official announcements during the competition, while also providing all the statistics you need to properly watch the IHF’s women’s flagship competition.

For starters, teams have been arriving in Spain for the past few days, with the four venues – Castelló, Granollers, Llíria and Torrevieja – ready to rumble. The sides have settled in well and will be starting the competition over the next three days. 

Tradition will be kept once again, as the hosts will throw off the competition and Spain meet Argentina in a fiery clash on Wednesday, 1 December. The hosts come motivated and ready to compete, after finishing second at the previous edition of the competition, in Japan 2019. 

Before the start of Spain 2021, we are also inviting you to take a trip down memory lane, celebrating the past 24 winners of the competition. There are teams that fought through thick and thin in open-air venues at the start of the IHF Women’s World Championship, we pay an homage to the all-great Russian team who dominated the tournament in the 2000s, and finish with the last team to seal the gold medal, the Netherlands.
