Official game ball for the World Championship presented!

IHF ball supplier Molten created a new version of the game ball for the Men’s Handball World Championship 2019 in two different colours

It is show-time for the new X5000: On 1 May 2018, the secret has been unveiled and the official game ball for the Men’s Handball World Championship 2019 has been presented by the official IHF ball supplier Molten.

And how does the ball look like? In line with previous tournaments, the ball is designed in the colours of the hosting nations. As Denmark and Germany are joint hosts, the new ball is available in two versions, one in the Danish colours and one in the German colours. For the Japanese based company Molten, it is the third time to be official ball supplier for a Men’s Handball World Championship after Qatar 2015 and France 2017.

From end of June on, right after the draw event for the Preliminary Round groups, the official ball and a replica will be up for grabs for all fans in selected shops.

The 2019 event is the first ever Men’s Handball World Championship, hosted in two different countries. From the opening match on 10 January 2019 and the grand final on 27 January, 88 matches will be carried out in Copenhagen, Herning (Denmark), Berlin, Munich, Cologne and Hamburg (Germany).

Tickets for all venues can be purchased via the official website handball19.com.
