WC Handball - Michel AD-FR 221

In 1938, the first indoor handball world championship was played in the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin, Germany on 5 February and 6 February. This first Tournament was held with only four participating teams and played as a Single-Group-Tournament without a knockout-system. Germany became the champion by defeating each of its opponents, one of which was Austria which would become a part of Germany only a month later. The other competitors were Sweden and Denmark, which sent the club team of Ajax Kobenhavn to the championship. Indoor handball was spread only in Scandinavia at this point in time and there had only been one single official international match played indoor before the Championship. In Germany, where the Tournament took place, the indoor game was practically unknown to this point. Nevertheless the Deutschlandhalle was attended by 18,000 spectators in the two days, who were reportedly very pleased by the fast and exciting model of handball. The first World Championship can be said to have been an obscure spectaculum for pure entertaining purposes. Matches lasted only 20 minutes (10 per half-time) and the players were recruited from field handball teams which sought an opportunity to perform their sport during winter. A first field handball WC was held in July of the same year in Berlin and other German cities, which was also won by Germany who were then olympic champions (in 1936) and dual world champions. Both WC tournaments were administered by the IAHF (International Amateur Handball Federation), the forerunner organisation of 1946 founded IHF, which was founded in 1928, and meant to be celebrational events for the 10th "birthday" of the Organisation.
