About the World Handball Council

WHC is the umbrella Organization for most of the national regulatory bodies that govern the sport of handball in two grades 1wall and 4 wall. Founded in 1957 the WHC provides expertise in, for example, Anti-doping, referee integrity and education, and vetting for members countries,  associate countries, and observer countries.


Meetings are held with the purpose of uniting, support, and promote its Members and development of the National Regulatory Bodies for the coordination and protection of their common aims and interests, communication and cooperation, while at the same time conserving and respecting their autonomy.


It serves as host to the most popular handball tournament in the world. The venue is unmatched by any other Handball event. In 2012, CityWest in Dublin, Ireland, hosted 1000 athletes and about 6000 fans over 14 days with cultural festivities. The World Handball Championships hosts for youth and adults alike, and alternates between 3 continents every three years. No other handball venue can compare.

WHC’s Vision

WHC vision is to be, “The united voice of Handball, protecting the interests of its members, associates members, and observer countries.” This vision encapsulates multi-faceted role; from supporting its member countries to gaining international federation status for Olympic and non-Olympic games.

WHC Mission

Wall Ball is Life!

The Mission of WHC is to serve, represent, promote and protect the common interests of our Members and to help them achieve their future objectives of approaching IF status for Olympic and Non Olympic Event Participation.


In particular, the objectives of WHC are to facilitate and promote knowledge sharing between its Members; to support the Organizations; to develop specific services for its Members in unique areas; and to organize and coordinate multi grade-handball events from youth to 90 plus!


WHC is uniquely placed within the handball milieu to provide knowledge sharing and best practices across all critical areas of handball governance, as well as help develop an International Federation for their sport. WHC represents the collective interests of Members in handball institutions and sports gatherings and creates one major world championship platform to generate commercialization opportunity, profile of elite athletes and revenue for hosting Members countries. As part of its services to Members, WHC also acts as official sanctioning body for international uniformity and potential global branding and presence.
