He Spanish handball is one of the great medal options for the Spanish committee. The team led by Jordi Ribera, fully immersed in a generational changehas the necessary experience for this type of tournament, as well as talented emerging players who will give energy and drive to the ‘Hispanos’.

The Catalan coach announced the final squad that will fight to try to achieve a new medal for Spanish sport. Despite being a list of 17 players, only 14 are part of the team with a permanent positionleaving the other three as reserves.
