Bahrain’s national handball team will Thursday play the United States in the first match of the main round of the 28th IHF Men’s World Championship, currently hosted by Poland and Sweden.

Bahrain last night beat Belgium 30-28 in their last Group H game to notch up their first win in the tournament and qualify for the main round.

This is the second successive time that Bahrain have qualified for the main round of the championship, following their first-ever appearance in the second stage in the 2021 edition of the tournament.

The victory meant that Bahrain finished in second place in the four-team group table with three points, behind reigning world champions Denmark who won all three of their preliminary round games to finish with six points.

Belgium, with two points, came in third while Tunisia, who drew their first game with Bahrain and lost the remaining two, finished last with just one point.


According to tournament rules, the top three teams from each of the eight groups go through to the main round while the last-placed teams will play the President’s Cup.
