The award of this event from the IKF comes months after an agreement that the Moroccan Association for Korfball and the Mediterranean Youth Association made with the Ministry of National Education to develop korfball in schools. Younes Cherfaoui (MAK president): “We are very proud to be able to organise the IKF World Beach Korfball Championship and to present the beautiful city of Nador to the korfball world. The event comes at the perfect moment to showcase korfball and really use it as an accelerator for the further development of korfball within Morocco.”
A live stream signal will be provided during the tournament on Field 1. To give all teams the opportunity to play broadcasted matches, the allocation of the fields has been slightly adjusted in the previous announced schedule. In the coming days, the LOC will inform trough which channels these live streams will be provided.
