It will be an event of a global scale, with an expected cumulative TV/streaming audience of over 12 billion, and 1 million total spectators attending the arenas.

At NOCCO, we’ve had a strong commitment to supporting handball for several years. It’s a tough and fast-paced sport that demands vigorous, dedicated and hardworking players, reflecting the values NOCCO stands for. We are very proud to support both the men’s and women’s world championships, which takes place in some of our strongest markets. We also look forward to seeing many of our partners represent their national teams on the court.
