Let’s get ready to handball!

2018 june 30.

’Anything can happen!’ – says the slogan of the World Championship. It’s not accidental, since many teams will fight for the world championship title and for the throne of the world. Just like in the popular TV-series, Game of Thrones, which inspired the set-up, the logo and the layout of the tournament. 

The world-famous 2CELLOS will be the star performer of the XXI IHF Women’s U20 World Championship’s opening ceremony on 1. July in Debrecen.

Young Croatian cellists, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser always prefer live music on stage. They are known as taking the cello to unimagined heights with their incredible talent and undeniable passion and with their unique music style they achieve great success worldwide. The duo entertain their fans with popular hits tuned to cello. Their playing style breaks down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. 2CELLOS rose to fame when their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” took the world by storm, and they adapted the AC/DC “Thunderstruck” song too, which is over 119 million views on YouTube. The duo performed this year’s football Champions League-final match, between Real Madrid and Liverpool. 

The opening ceremony – with the performance of 2Cellos – of the World Championship begins at 16:00 hrs on 1. July 2018 in Debrecen. 

After the opening ceremony Hungary vs. Brazil match opens the World Championship at 18:00 hrs
