Handball world cup

Recommended Posts

Is anyone watching the handball world cup? They are showing some game in Freesport. I think handball is a really underrated game. Is is getting much coverage in Germany @nudge  or France @Batard ?

Not a fan of handball myself... Don't know how the coverage in Germany is; I haven't been there for years haha. Probably decent as they have one of the best handball teams in the world... @Tommy might know better

Not sure to be honest. I'm not really a fan of it myself

 Answering in @Tommy's behalf: Germany's matches are broadcasted on free TV in Germany and overall there's good coverage because Handball is the second most practiced team sport here.

Ow right. We don't actually have a national team. Which is quite bad I think because although handball is a minor sport in Britain we still have enough resources to put a team together

Handball is one of those sports I love when it's in the Olympics but couldn't care less for the following four years.

I also think in the UK it barely even exists. Never known a school who do it in PE, or heard of a local handball club to my memory.

Strange as I do think it's a decent sport, nice balance of technique, intelligence and physicality.

I do regret not going to watch it when we hosted the Olympics. I've never really understood why indoor team sports aren't more popular over here considering it pisses down most of the time.

You are right we don't even have a national team. We reformed for the Olympics but we haven't played a game since 2015.

Its normally only the Olympic which are shown. This is the first time the world cup has been shown in the UK. Funnily enough there was once a man utd handball team. Don't know of they were anything to do with man utd or just took the name
