World Championships

Only 9 teams participated in the first championship, this number grew to the present 24 which was introduced in 1997. In 1977 a B tournament was introduced and later in 1986 a C-tournament which served as qualification for the real championship or A-tournament. The B and C tournament qualifications were replaced by the present qualification system in 1993. [1] From 1993 it has been held every other year, between 1978 and 1990 it was held every fourth alternating with the Olympic tournament (introduced for women handball in 1976), and before that it was held more irregularly.[ citation needed ] The first five tournaments were held in the summer or early fall whereas the rest has been held in November or December.
