The date for the preliminary round game in the Group D between the German and Dutch Women´s national teams is not fixed yet. Due to the good result of the German team at the EHF EURO 2016 in Sweden it is possible that the ranking of the German team within the IHF position rows will still change. These determine in which draw pot the participating teams are allocated at the final draw.
The game between the German team and the runner-up of the 2015 IHF World Championship in Denmark will therefore either take place on December 6 or 8 and not as previously communicated on December 6. A final decision on the exact fixture is expected in early 2017.
