Where to watch European handball in Australia
We may be on the other side of the world, but there are a few handy ways to watch European handball streams in Australia.
In Australia, football is three things. NRL footy. Rugby union. And, honestly, what it really should be: soccer, given players are only supposed to use their feet (don’t get me started on goalies). It stands to reason, then, that handball is the opposite of football, and in many ways it is. But it’s not the four-squares free-for-all played in primary school.
Handball, or European handball as it’s otherwise known, is a growing sport that’s like soccer with hands, where two teams square off to score the most goals. If you’re a European handball fan or keen to see what it’s all about, we’ve got you covered with this handy guide.

Watch the IHF World Championships in Australia
At the time of writing, there was no broadcaster in Australia who held the rights for IHF World Championship tournaments. That may read like a bad thing but it’s actually great because it means the official IHF YouTube channel is still the place to stream IHF events. There’s no need to use a VPN and no price to pay to access the live streams and replays from Australia.
Watch Beach Handball in Australia
Visit the IHF Competitions YouTube channel—yes, a second official IHF YouTube channel—for a range of other global handball tournaments, including the IHF Beach Handball Global Tour for men and women. This spin-off YouTube channel is also home to the IHF Super Globe tournaments.
Watch the IHF Trophy in Australia
Stream full match replays, highlights and live IHF Trophy matches on the IHF Competitions YouTube channel.
Handball has been an Olympic event in the Summer Games since 1936. To watch replays and highlights from past Summer Games, check out the content on 7plus or search for ‘handball’ on the official Olympics YouTube channel. In the future, handball events will stream on 9Now.
