27 JAN 99: 2001 Women's Junior WC awarded to Hungary

Hungary will be organising the XIIIth Women's Junior World Championships for Handball from 29 July to 12 August 2001. During the latest meeting held last weekend the Council of the International Handball Federation unanimously spoke in favour of awarding the title matches concerned to the Hungarian Handball Federation, who last distinguished themselves in 1995 with a well-organised Women's World Championships (together with Austria).
The Men's World Championships in France (20/1-4/2/2001) and the Men's Junior WC in Switzerland (19/8-2/9/2001) having already been awarded by the 1998 IHF Congress, the one decision that remains to be taken is the allocation of the Women's World Championships, scheduled to be held from 2 to 16 December 2001.
