The 2019 award for IHF World Player of the Year for women was received by Norwegian playmaker Stine Bredal Oftedal, captain of the Norwegian national team and one of the main figures for Gyori Audi ETO KC.

Oftedal was nominated for the first time for this award alongside with four other players: the Dutch trio Estevana Polman, Lois Abbingh and Tess Wester and Russian Anna Vyakhireva.

Voting for the awards was closed at midnight on Saturday July 18, the final day of the first annual International Handball Week. For each award, there were five nominees decided by a panel of 18 experts – nine from the IHF and nine top national team coaches.
