Already 42.000 tickets sold
When the 22nd IHF Women’s Handball World Championship is played in Denmark in December 2015 the four host cities will be visited by a big number of handball fans. The interest for tickets to the event has been huge – both in regards to the pre-sale for the matches in Herning which was opened in December 2014 and to the official sale which was launched yesterday, Tuesday 11th August.
“It has been great to witness the great interest for the Women’s World Championship and the ticket sale definitely exceeds our expectations,” says DHF president Per Bertelsen who also gives thank to the host cities:
”The four host cities, Herning, Næstved, Frederikshavn and Kolding, and Sport Event Denmark are key players in our organization, and I thank them for their big effort in making this event well-known and attractive for the local, national and international handball fans.”

In December 2014 a presale was opened for the match days in Herning, where the Danish team will play. Here 30.000 tickets have been sold over the past eight months so the total number of sold tickets is 42.000.
”The impressive ticket sale allows us to expect a giant handball celebration in December. We do not lean back, though, as we still have a lot of work to do in order to ensure the greatest possible handball experience for the fans in all four host cities,” says Per Bertelsen.
