TUNISIAN PASSION

Along with Germany, Tunisia is undoubtedly the country where handball is most popular, just behind football. With a competitive championship, talented players, a passionate public and a high level of media attention, Tunisia truly is the Land of Handball.

They qualified for the 2017 World Championship thanks to their 2nd place finish in 2016 African Championship. Tunisia did not disappoint at the Olympic Games in Rio despite being eliminated in the group stages: it fought it out with France right to the end (losing by a two-goal difference) and claimed a draw against Qatar. In Rio, Tunisia made it very tough for the two 2015 World Championship finalists! You can count on them in France…
