IKF World Korfball Championship 2019

The 11th IKF World Korfball Championship 2019 will take place in South Africa in the city of Durban from 1 till 10 August 2019. The team managers meeting will take place on 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.

The 20 countries, divided into 4 pots, have been divided into 5 pools of 4 countries through an open draw. The countries from pot 1 had a fixed position in the pools. The draw can be watched on the IKF YouTube channel.
