Each OQT will take place over three matchdays: Friday 17 April, Saturday 18 April, and Sunday 19 April 2020. The tournaments will feature four teams each. They will play each other once in a round-robin format with the top two teams in each group qualifying directly through to Tokyo 2020.

The match schedule for every OQT relates to which qualification slot each nation took.

All throw-off times in all three Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournaments are set to be confirmed after consultation between the IHF, local organizing committees, and marketing/television partners.
