Norway-Ivory Coast 10-0

2018 july 02.

The Competition Management of the 2018 IHF Women’s Junior (U20) World Championship have made the decision to cancel the Round 1 Group A match Norway vs Ivory Coast, because the Ivory Coast  will not arrive on time for its first match. The game in question, Match No. 2, was scheduled to take place on Monday July 2 at 12:00. The IHF Competition Management explored every option to reschedule the match but found that such a course of action would be impossible and could have a negative impact on other teams in the group. In accordance with the IHF Regulations concerning penalties and fines, Article 17, the match will count as a non-appearance for Ivory Coast with a 10:0 result for Norway. Ivory Coast will therefore receive zero points, while Norway will receive two points.
