Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, FISU World University Handball Championship, to be held in Lodz, Poland on 15-21 June 2020, has been cancelled. The decision was made by the Organising Committee in consultation with FISU.
The OC regrets that the championship cannot be held as planned, but the health and safety of all participants, officials, volunteers and staff takes precedence. We extend our sympathies to all teams who have expected to participate and remain deeply grateful to all partners involved in the organisation of the event.
Over the coming months, FISU World University Championship Department will work with the OC on the possibility to postpone the event to the same period in 2021. However, as many factors have to be considered before making a final decision, no definitive statement can be made at this time.
We thank everyone for understanding this difficult decision and hope for the pandemic to be soon under control so the remaining events of the World University Championship season may proceed as planned.
