Handball is a team sport whose modern form was born in the 19th century in Northern Europe; the current rules were published as early as 1917 in Germany. In handball, two teams of 7 play a match, trying to score more goals than the opponent. As the name suggests, the ball is thrown into the opponent's goal by hand. This discipline is especially popular in Europe, especially in Germany, Spain, France and Poland. If you're into handball betting, you've come to the right place!
International and national handball competitions
As in most modern sports, the games are divided into men's and women's. The first men's international tournament was organized in 1925, and five years later, in 1930, the first women's international tournament was held. Since 1936, men's handball has been one of the disciplines at the Summer Olympic Games, and since 1976, its female version has also joined.
Handball competitions are governed by the international federation IHF, which was founded in 1946 and headquartered in Basel, Switzerland. The IHF is made up of six continental federations from Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, Oceania, and South and Central America, with a total of 209 national organizations. The IHF organizes the largest international competitions, including the world championships held every two years. International tournaments for club teams are also organized.
Due to the fact that handball is mainly popular in Europe, the best teams come from Europe. Just look at the history of the world championship - since 1938 all medals in the men's tournament went to Europeans; while in the women's competition, medals went outside Europe only twice - to Brazil and Korea.
