Handball is a team sport, which, in its modern form, originated in 19th century in Northern Europe, while its current rules were published in 1917 in Germany. In handball, two teams consisting of seven players each compete to get the higher score by throwing the ball using their hands into the goal. It is popular mainly in Europe, especially in Germany, Spain, France and Poland. If you are interested in handball betting with the best odds, you’ve come to the right website!
International and Regional Handball Competitions
As in most modern sports, there are separate handball competitions for men and women. The first international tournament for men was held in 1925, while the first international women’s event was held only five years later — in 1930. Today, handball is part of the Summer Olympic Games, where it is played, since 1936, by men, and, since 1976, by women.
Handball is regulated by the IHF, an international federation that was created in 1946 and is now currently located in Basel, Switzerland. It consists of six continental federations in Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, Oceania, and South and Central America, with a total of 209 national associations. IHF organizes major national competitions, including world championships, which are held every two years. There are also international events for club teams.
As the sport is popular mainly in Europe, it is also reflected on the professional scene, which is heavily dominated by Europeans. Just take a look at the history of World Championships; Europeans have won all the medals in the men’s competitions since 1938, while in the women’s competitions, only two medals were received by non-European countries — Brazil and Korea.
