Aalborg snubbed as PSG gets wildcard for Club World Championship

For the first time since 2019, the runner-up of the Champions League has missed out on a wildcard to the IHF Club World Championship (previously IHF Super Globe). Instead, PSG, who did not make it to the Final Four, received the chance, according to handball oracle Rasmus Boysen.

Last year, Magdeburg won the competition after beating Füchse Berlin in the finals.

The nine spots:
– African Super Cup winner
Zamalek – representative of the organizing country
FC Barcelona – ​​Champions League winner
SC Magdeburg – defending champion of the tournament
Al Khaleej – Asian Champions League winner
Taubate Handebol – South American Champions League winner
