The draw for the IHF Men’s World Championship 2019 in Germany and Denmark will be staged in the picturesque Town Hall of Copenhagen, Denmark on Monday, 25 June 2018. As the Organising Committee states on their website, “the entire area in and around the Town Hall will be transformed into a huge handball event throughout the day with street handball in the Town Hall Square, shootout competitions, music and much more.”
During the event, which will be attended by Danish national team players, the ambassadors of the 2019 Men’s World Championship and the Germany and Denmark national team coaches Christian Prokop and Nikolaj Jacobsen, the official championship mascot will be revealed just as well as the musicians behind the event.
