“Stick Together” is the anthem of the 28th IHF Men’s World Championship

The anticipation for the 28th edition of the IHF Men's World Championship is building up, with another milestone coming up before the start of the world handball flagship competition.

The official song of the 2023 IHF Women's World Championship, performed by Polish singer Alicja Szemplińska, will be released on all platforms on 18 November. The song "Stick Together", which emulates the competition's motto, will be the official anthem of the tournament hosted by Poland and Sweden, beginning 11 January and running until 29 January 2023, the second IHF Men's World Championship to feature 32 teams.

Szemplińska has been a mainstay in Polish music over the last few years, rising to fame after winning the tenth season of the popular tv show "The Voice of Poland" in 2019. She became even more famous after winning the Polish preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020. Still, she did not represent her country because the competition was cancelled after the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

The Polish singer has since released plenty of songs, which rose to critical acclaim and were instant fan favourites, with tens of millions of views on Youtube and other streaming platforms.

"Stick Together" is a modern song with an electronic beat, which ties together the competition's motto with the excitement of handball. It will probably be an instant hit throughout the championship's nine venues – Krakow, Gdansk, Katowice and Plock in Poland and Stockholm, Malmö, Jönköping, Gothenborg and Kristianstad in Sweden.
