IKF World Korfball Championship 2019

August 1 @ 8:00 am - August 10 @ 5:00 pm

Information

The 11th IKF World Korfball Championship will take place in South Africa in the city of Durban. The match days are 1 till 10 August  2019. The team managers meeting will take place 31 July.

The IKF WKC 2019 will contain the highest number of participants in the history of korfball. The number of 16 countries during the IKF WKC 2015 in Belgium has grown to 20 participating countries at this year’s edition. The participating countries all have qualified themselves during their Continental Championships in 2018.

Of the initial 20 countries that qualified for the IKF WKC 2019 the Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe unfortunately had to withdraw. While also the first reserve of the Americas (Brazil) was not able to step in, the first reserves of Europe (Slovakia) and Asia (Macau China) have been approached as replacements. Both countries happily accepted the invitation.
