The blaugranes are world champions for the third consecutive time, and the fifth in total
Barça have been proclaimed Super Globe champions after beating THW Kiel (32-34). The new venue for the tournament, the Damman Sports Hall, witnessed Xavi Pascual's side win its fifth world title (2013/14, 2014/15, 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20), and their third in succession. The Barça players wore a black armband in memory of Luis Enrique's daughter Xana.
Though the match began fairly equally Barça were soon behind, but by half-time they'd reduced the deficit to just two points (17-15).
