During whole Friday 25th November, tickets in category 1 (the highest price) will be sold at the category 3 prices.
After the Phenomenal Days, which offers until 1st December all ticket buyers a phenomenal prize, the Organizing Committee of the World Championship launches another original initiative this Friday 25th November: the Black Friday. During this exceptional day and only that day, tickets in category 1 (the highest price) will be sold at the category 3 prices for all World Championship matches (except for those where tickets are already sold out).
More over, the OC announced this week that more than 300,000 tickets of the Men’s 2017 Handball World Championship have been sold. Very satisfying for David Donnelly, Director of Marketing and Communication with the Organizing Committee: “The strong dynamic we saw during the first phase of selling ticket packages remains good for the eight competition host sites and we hope that it will continue and even accelerate as the deadline approaches, especially during the holiday season. The French team matches are obviously the most in demand, but we are also seeing a strong demand from abroad, especially from our German neighbours and the Scandinavian countries.”
Tickets have been bought by people of 32 different nationalities, with a high proportion coming from countries with a particularly strong link to international handball, namely Germany, Norway, Denmark and Sweden, so the arenas for those matches will provide a warm atmosphere with the support of those team fans. Please note that seven matches are already sold out: the Final on 29th January, the four games for the French team in Nantes, Spain-Tunisia in Metz (Group B) and Germany-Croatia in Rouen (Group C). Lastly, the Pierre-Mauroy stadium in Lille Métropole, which will turn into an arena in January, is already guaranteed to beat the record for the number of spectators at a handball game in France, with 15,000 tickets (per match) already sold for the eight-final and quarter-final of the French team on 21st and 24th January, which is more than the capacity of the AccorHotels Arena in Paris.
