DKB Deutsche Handball Bundesliga Tickets
DKB Deutsche Handball-Bundesliga - Germany's top-flight league
Founded in 1965, the DKB Deutsche Handball-Bundesliga is the top-tier league in the professional German handball game. You can both buy and sell DKB Deutsche Handball-Bundesliga tickets on StubHub.
THW Kiel dominate
Germany handball's top flight was originally split into two regional sections, North and South, before merging into one national league in 1977. Four years later a second division, 2. Bundesliga, was formed, replacing the Regionalliga which then became the third tier. Each Bundesliga season typically starts in August and lasts until May the following year, with 18 teams vying to be crowned the victors over a total of 34 weeks. The top three teams at the end of the season qualify for the EHF League, with the fourth and fifth placed sides entitled to compete in the EHF Cup, and the bottom two clubs suffering the heartbreak of relegation. THW Kiel have been the dominant force in the German game over the past half-century, winning more than a dozen league titles, including five in a row in the '00s and four consecutive in the '10s. Historic teams such as VfL Gummersbach, Frisch Auf Göppingen and TV Grosswallstadt typically provided their main competition in the 20th Century.

The new class emerge
Since the millennium several newer sides have made the league much more competitive. Formed in 2002, Rhein-Neckar Löwen lifted the title in 2016 and 2017, while SG Flensburg-Handewitt and HSV Hamburg, both of whom didn't exist before 1999, have also picked up the trophy. As a result of the nation's success in European competition, the DKB Deutsche Handball-Bundesliga regularly appears above Spain's Liga ASOBAL and France's Lidl Starligue in the top three of the EHF (European Handball Federation) coefficient rank. The league is also one of the most-watched in the world, with a total of 1.5 million spectators attending venues such the Sparkassen-Arena, the Schwalbe-Arena and the Flens-Arena each season, and many more viewing in their homes thanks to games transmitted in over 40 different countries.
