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.

There’s no need to use a VPN and no price to pay to access the live streams and replays from Australia.
