Created in 2012, the Golden League is played out between France, Norway and Denmark. It alternates each season between the men's and women’s leagues. There are three stages to the competition. Each stage is held in one of the three founding countries. A guest team is also invited, but their scores do not count in the final rankings. Modern handball was established at the beginning of the twentieth century in Denmark and is normally played as an indoor sport. The teams consist of seven players, one of which is the goalkeeper. The object is to score a goal by throwing the ball into the opponent’s net. Players can only hold the ball at a height above the knee, however they can also bounce the ball like in basketball. Games last an hour, divided into two thirty-minute halves. It is a physical sport, and tackling is allowed. It is also a fast game, compared by one player to water polo. The sport is governed by the International Handball Federation. As well as the Golden league, there are world championships.
