2019 IHF MEN’S

VIP Sportstravel has had a long-standing partnership with the German Handball Federation and is the official national travel partner of the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championship. For the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championship we act as organiser of trips for official DHB sponsors, partners and fans. As part of this cooperation, we have access to the official ticket inventory and can thus directly serve any request.

The 26th Men’s Handball World Championship will be held on 10-27 January 2019 in Denmark and Germany. On 28 October 2013, the International Handball Federation (IHF) announced at its Doha congress that the World Cup will be held in Denmark and Germany. With arenas like the Royal Arena in Copenhagen (13,500 spectators), Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning (15,000), Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin (14,800), Olympiahalle in Munich (12,000), LANXESS Arena in Cologne (19,250) and Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg (13,300) have Dansk Håndbold Forbund and the German Handball Federation made an impressive selection. The 2019 World Championship will be held in new format: four preliminary round groups of six teams will be followed by two main round groups of six teams. The best two teams in each group reach the semi-finals. With the motto “Stand out!”, the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championship will be opened in Berlin and culminate with the final in Copenhagen.

On the basis of your wishes and requirements, we create your individual travel package leaving nothing to be desired! We will take care of your carefree trip, bring you to first-class hotels and also provide an attractive programme of restaurants, sightseeing and other activities in the venues in Germany and Denmark. Our complete support allows you to concentrate fully on the enjoyment of every single moment – so you can have your hands free to cheer.
