Handball has a huge fan base in Germany. More than 16 million viewers tuned in to the World Cup final victory in 2007, and around 12 million to the match for third place in 2019.

The hopes for a top placement are also high at the 2023 Handball World Cup – and all games with German participation will be broadcast live on ARD and ZDF.

Both broadcasters have live streams in their media libraries and the streaming service Joyn also offers free live streams.

By the way, the channel Eurosport shows 15 other matches, all 112 World Cup games are available for a package price of 15 euros on the streaming service “Sportdeutschland.tv”.

Here is the overview of the German games for the preliminary round.

All other games with German participation will also be broadcast by ARD or ZDF, and the live streams can also be accessed via the media libraries. The exact dates depend on the course of the tournament. Should Germany make it to the final, there will also be this game – kick-off on January 29 in Stockholm at 8:30 p.m. – on ARD or ZDF. If the Germans are no longer there, the final will be broadcast on Eurosport. This also applies to the two semifinals.

The moderator team in the first consists of moderator Alexander Bommes, commentator Florian Naß and ex-national player Dominik Klein. Katrin Müller-Hohenstein moderates on ZDF, supported by reporters Christoph Hamm and Martin Schneider and co-commentator Markus Baur. Ex-national player Sven-Sören Christophersen is there as an expert. At Eurosport, spectators can look forward to seeing former world-class player Pascal “Pommes” Hans, among others.

16 years after the furious World Cup victory, is it enough for the German title to be won again? Many fans believe in it, but depend on the principle of hope. The sober analysis of national coach Alfred Gislason is: “We are not among the favourites”. Hendrik Pekeler, Patrick Wiencek, Paul Wiede or Steffen Weinhold – many top players are not there after cancellations. Hopes rest on young players like Juri Knorr or Julian Köster, who have to surpass themselves against the star players from Sweden, France or Iceland. The team can certainly play in the round of 16. If Germany reaches the semi-finals this year, that would definitely be a great success.

Handall World Cup – Strange tactics – Slovenians voluntarily do without an attacking player

In a superior number, deliberately forgo a player in attack? Slovenia used this tactic in the game at the Handball World Championship against Poland. This behavior has nothing to do with arrogance. But behind this tactic lies more sophistication.
