The official ball supplier for the IHF, the Molten Corporation, presented the official match ball designed exclusively for the 26th IHF Men’s World Championship today. The Japanese manufacturer of quality sports balls and equipment will supply all match balls for the Men’s World Championship next January in Germany and Denmark – the first to be hosted by two nations.
The X5000 Germany/Denmark edition ball features a custom flag design that represents the two host countries. The ball is made using premium material that offers improved ball control, accuracy and grip, making it perfectly suited to the high-level competition. At the end of July 2018, official game balls and replica models will be available for purchase in select markets.
“Molten’s brand statement, ‘For the real game’, encapsulates what we hope to accomplish through our products and activities. It is our conviction that the real game happens only when impeccable balls and sports equipment enable athletes to realize their full potential and maximize performance,” reads the statement from Molten.
Germany/Denmark 2019 will be the third IHF Men’s World Championship with official match balls supplied by Molten, after the 2015 World Championship in Qatar and the 2017 World Championship in France, both won by France. The 2019 World Championship will run from January 10 to 27 in six host cities across Germany and Denmark.
