Handball: The Gladiators will play group F of the World Cup

The Argentine men’s handball team, “Los Gladiadores”, will play with Norway, North Macedonia and the Netherlands, in Group F of the World Cup to be played in Poland and Sweden between January 11 and 29 next year. I am very happy to be able to start working already thinking about the World Cup. Clearly the area and the subsequent crossings are not the ones we would have chosen. However, it gives us the possibility to compete with great teams. This helps us to add quality games and think about our final goal which is Santiago 2023, “said Milano.The Poland-Sweden 2023 World Cup will mean the second ecumenical event that will be held in double venue (the first was in Denmark -Germany 2019) and will repeat for the second consecutive edition the format of 32 teams, against the 24 that participated until 2019.In the first phase, participants will be divided into eight groups of four; the first three of each will advance to the Main Round with a drag of points obtained with the other two classified, while the fourth will play the President’s Cup. The Main Round will consist of four groups of six contenders, reported the Argentine Handball Confederation.In case of qualifying for this instance, The Gladiators will be measured against the three teams from Group E, composed of Germany -world champion on three occasions-, the Asian champion Qatar, Serbia -14th in the European tournament- and the fifth classified from Africa. The top two from each Main Round zone will advance to the quarterfinals.” The Gladiators” qualified for the World Cup by achieving one of the four places provided by the South Central tournament, which was held in Recife, Brazil, last January. In the last World Cup – Egypt 2021 – Argentina finished in eleventh place and thus improved its most outstanding performances in an ecumenical tournament of majors: in Sweden 2011 and Qatar 2015 it finished in twelfth place.
