Withdrawal of Ivory Coast

2018 july 04.

On July 4, the 2018 IHF Women’s Junior World Championship Competition Management received the official notice that the Ivory Coast team will not be able to travel to Hungary for the event and will therefore not participate. This information came following the delayed travel of the team, after which the Group A schedule was adjusted in the hope of avoiding the cancellation of other matches.

In accordance with the corresponding decision of the Competition Management following the relevant IHF Regulations, the team of Ivory Coast will be removed from the match schedule of the event. This means that all other teams in Group A will only play four preliminary round matches.

Apart from the cancellation of the matches concerned, the match schedule will remain unchanged, with all other preliminary round matches in Group A taking place with the throw-off times as previously announced.

Further programme of Group A:
Wednesday, 4. July:
16:00 Brazil-Norway
18:00 Portugal-Hungary
Thursday, 5. July: 
18:00 Norway-Montenegro
20:00 Brazil-Portugal
