Best Young Player

Powered by

The 2023 IHF Women’s World Championship is the first-ever to be co-hosted by three countries – Denmark, Norway and Sweden – and the 26th edition of the world handball flagship competition will bring another maiden award, which aims to reward the best young player in the competition.

The “Best Young Player Powered by Lidl” is the new award which will be presented to the best young player aged Under-21 at the 2023 IHF Women’s World Championship, underlining the common values shared by the International Handball Federation (IHF) and its Official Fresh Food Partner, Lidl, in creating a path for the top young talent to be nurtured and developed.

Lidl has been a strong backer of handball as a sport and a long-time partner of the International Handball Federation, with the first appearance being at the 2017 IHF Men’s World Championship. This is the first time the company has become a partner for an edition of the IHF Women’s World Championship, marking its approach with the introduction of the new award for the best young player in the competition.

As the “Official Fresh Food Partner” for the 2023 IHF Women’s World Championship, Lidl understands the importance of forging one’s path to the top, as the journey from the bottom to the top being, in itself, the most important part of the story.

Each and every edition of the IHF Women’s World Championship has remained witness to the exploits of a young player who shined and went on to become a transitional talent over the course of the next decades in handball.
