Hörður has periodically fielded a men's handball team during its history.In February 2020, Þór Akureyri demanded that Hörður would pay 400.000 ISK in travel expense of Þór's trip to Ísafjörður for their September game in the Icelandic Cup. In the Cup, teams split all the income and cost of games, including travel expense of the away team, and Þór stated that their total travel expense was 800.000 ISK. The board of Hörður strongly objected as its own travel expense to Akureyri in January where they faced Þór's reserve team had not exceeded 120.000 ISK. Two days later, the clubs reached an undisclosed settlement and the Icelandic Handball Association announced it would review its rules regarding the settlement of cup games.
Although it finished last in the third-tier 2. deild karla in 2019–20,Hörður was offered a seat in the second tier 1. deild karla for the 2020–21 season.
