Due to unexpected VISA problems, the team of Morocco had to withdraw their participation for the IKF U19 WKC 2019 in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Despite of multiple initiatives from within Morocco and support from the International Korfball Federation and the Dutch umbrella organisation for sports NOC*NSF it has not been possible to acquire the requested VISA on time.
A very unfortunate and painful situation for the Moroccan Federation and even more for the players of the Under 19 National Moroccan team who seriously prepared for this event.
The withdrawal of Morocco means that the tournament now continues with 12 countries. The adjusted match schedule can be found at the IKF U19 WKC event page.
