    Team handball has been an Olympic sport since 1972. In Europe, it is one of the most popular team sports, after soccer and basketball. By July 2009, the International Handball Federation (IHF) listed 166 member federations with approximately 795, 000 teams and 19 million players. According to the ranking of “TOTAL SPORTEK” based on 13 different factors, handball is the 22nd most popular sport all over the world but is one of the most popular team sports in Europe. Just within the last 3 years, the number of players doubled in some countries (e.g., Hungary 2015-2017, 31, 000 to 63, 000 registered handball players).
