#wefightfortriumph at the
Handball World Cup 2021
The 2021 World Cup in Egypt took place under corona measures and therefore without spectators. But of course not without Kempa athletes. In the final between Denmark and Sweden, five players played in Kempa shoes.
The 2021 World Cup was in a critical spotlight. Despite the global Corona pandemic, the World Cup was played in Egypt. The teams and players were in a bubble, to the exclusion of the public. Corona tests were constantly carried out, but even at this World Cup there were some positive cases. Cape Verde had to cancel the World Cup after their first match because they had too many positive cases in their player ranks. The Czech national team and the USA national team also had to cancel the World Cup at short notice.
Nevertheless, the spectators could watch great handball games on television. In the end, Denmark was the winner. Three teams played in Kempa jerseys at this World Cup. The national team from Iceland played in the new Kempa Status collection and showed good games with Björgvin Gutvasson in goal. Furthermore, Qatar and Tunisia played in Kempa gear.

The hosts Egypt were able to provide a small surprise. They made it to the quarterfinals with Kempa player Mo Sanad and were only defeated by the future world champions Denmark in the seven-meter throw. Adria Dipanda and the French national team made it to the semi-finals. The German team, around the Kempa athletes: Uwe Gensheimer, Andreas Wolff and Lukas Strutzke unfortunately had to say goodbye after the main round this time. In the final, Sweden faced Denmark, which means five Kempa players on the side of the yellow-blue: Felix Claar, Jonatahan Carlsbogard, Oscar Bergendahl, Max Darj and Hampus Wanne, who was voted player of the match twice and voted in the World Cup 2021 Handball Allstar Team.
