Womens Handball Tokyo 2020

In summer 2020, the medals at the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be awarded. But in the men's handball and the women's competition the qualification is for all nations the first difficult tasks. Japan will be qualified directly as host nations, and the reigning world champions get a ticket. The contribution of the remaining ten places in both competitions was published by the International Handball Federation (IHF).

The tournament in Tokyo will be played from 24 July to 9 August. So the qualification pathway for all the national teams around the world to make their way to Japan is set.

"As host nation, Japan qualify directly in both the men's and women's competitions, leaving 11 places in each competition to be filled. The continents of Africa, Asia, Europe and Pan America (including both North America and the Caribbean Handball Confederation and South and Central America Handball Confederation) will be represented by at least one team", the IHF published on its website.

The tickets for the American contents were awarded at the Panamerican Games, played in Peru in August 2019. In Asia the women's tournament will be played in November 2019. The venues are not confirmed up to now.

Also, there will be Olympic Qualification Tournaments hosted by the IHF. "Six places will be allocated through three tournaments featuring four teams each. The two highest placed teams in each tournament will book their ticket to Tokyo", the IHF declared and explained: "12 teams will compete in both the Men`s and Women`s Olympic Qualification Tournaments, with teams ranked 2nd-7th (6 in total) in their respective 2019 IHF World Championship participating. The remaining six teams will consist of the two from the best ranked continent at the respective 2019 World Championship, two from the second-best continent and one each from the third and fourth best continent."

Netherlands have been crowned Women's handball world champions for the first time, edging Spain 30-29 with a last-second penalty in Kumamoto, Japan. The dramatic final victory also gives the Netherlands team a place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The Spanish team will have one last chance to qualify, at the IHF Olympic Qualification Tournaments in March 2020.

As of now, Japan, France, Brazil, South Korea, Angola and The Netherlands got their qualification tickets, while there will be also 3 IHF Women's Olympic Qualification Tournaments held in Spain, Hungary and Montenegro to decide the last 6 teams. The first 2 teams from each group will get the spot for Tokyo.

Spain will play at home against Sweden, Senegal and Argentina. Hungary will host China, Serbia and Russia, while Montenegro is going to play against Romania and Norway, as of yet. The last team from Montenegro’s group will be decided by the International Handball Federation. The spot was awarded to North Korea, but the Asian later withdrew due to an unknown reason. It’s very probable that this spot will be awarded to either Germany (the first ranked team at the World Championship who missed the spots for qualification tournaments) or Kazakhstan (best Asian team who didn’t qualify for these group stage).
