A nation of two golden periods
The Swedish national men's handball side has enjoyed two golden periods during its rich century-spanning history. The first came in the post-war era when legendary manager Curt Wadmark led the country to two IHF Men's Handball World Championship titles and a gold medal at the 1948 World Cup Field. The second arrived towards the tail end of the 20th Century when coach Bengt Johansson guided "Bengan Boys" such as Magnus Wislander, Tomas Svensson and Stefan Lövgren to four golds at the European Handball Championship, two golds at the Worlds, and consecutive silvers at the Summer Games in Barcelona '92, Atlanta '96 and Sydney '00. They have since added to their tally with silvers at London 2012 and the 2018 Euros, and as a result are now one of the most decorated European nations in handball history. The country further cemented their status as giants of the game by putting in successful bids to stage both the World Championships in 2020 and European Championships in 2023. You can both buy and sell Sweden National Handball Team tickets on StubHub.
A largely German-based squad
The majority of the modern men's Swedish national handball team play their trade in the German Bundesliga, with two of their most capped players this century, Mattias Zachrisson and Niclas Ekberg, signed to Füschse Berlin and THW Kiel respectively. Magnus Wislander is widely regarded as the finest player to have pulled on the famous yellow and blue shirt, having netted a record 1185 goals in a record 384 caps during the Bengan Boys era, while other notable names include Pierre Thorsson, Kim Andersson, Ola Lindgren, Erik Hajas and Peter Gentzel. Sweden also boast a thriving women's handball team that competed in Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016, picked up a silver at the 2010 European Championships and a bronze at the 2014 event and reached the semi-finals of the 2017 World Championships.
