The Israeli sport event Israelis haven't heard of
Like the average Israeli, handball is aggressive and impatient. Still, while Europeans are passionate about the game, Israeli fans shy away from arenas.
When the national handball team of Germany, Serbia or Sweden prepares for a crucial World Cup qualifier, the buzz around the team is deafening, thousands of fans get excited and the media pumps up expectations. In Israel, before the crucial game against the Netherlands, there was nothing of the sort. Handball simply isn’t a leading sport.
