The Men’s National Team Selection Committee named a list of 35 athletes to the provisional U.S. national team roster for the 2021 IHF Men’s World Championships, currently scheduled to be held January 13 – 31, 2021.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, player evaluations were conducted virtually, utilizing video submissions. More information on the selection process can be found here.


A second round of selections for the 20-man final roster will be conducted by December 5, 2020. Athletes will also be notified of their selection at that time.

Athletes will begin learning about COVID-related protocols for the U.S. National Team prior to the World Championships. USA Team Handball has fielded a National Team Competition and Travel Covid Working Group that includes physicians and other medical professionals, which will be supporting the Men’s National Team when it travels to Egypt
