Team Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each pass a ball to throw it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of two periods of 30 minutes, and the team that scores more goals wins. Each side has 6 outfield players and 1 goalie. The sport, from what I have seen, looks like a mix of Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and basketball. Players with the ball can take up to 3 steps with the ball before having to dribble. Defense is played similar to basketball; however refs seem to allow a little more contact. The sport is very common in Europe, the Middle East, and parts of South America. The field size is on a 131 by 66 ft indoor court. The sport is not common in the United States; however the US does have a Handball federation. Offense is heavily favored in Handball, with scores ranging in the high 20s to low 40s. Handball kits resemble Soccer Kits. In 2015, sports businessmen were seeking a way of increasing revenue by exposing sports fans to a new sport. With the MLB losing favor with the young generation, the NFL becoming increasingly soft with rule changes, and the NBA becoming a prima-Dona league, businessmen saw an opening for a new sport to emerge in the North American market. Sports like Ultimate Frisbee and Lacrosse were discussed; however, Handball was an internationally popular sport that fit the bill for American sports fans-- high scoring, and exciting. By 2017, handball was being exposed to many southern universities and high schools in hopes to attract a young fan base to the sport of handball. European Handballers would come overseas to promote the sport. Plans for a professional league were coming together. The USA Handball Federation located in Tucson Arizona was heavily invested in having a succesful league take off. By 2018, the framework for a North American Handball League was on the ropes. Target markets were decided, and 8 owners came together to start the North American Handball League with plans to expand the league in a logical and thoughtful manner. The NAHA (North American Handball Association) was completely formed on August 1st of 2018, with the league expected to start in Late Summer of 2019. A FOX Sports TV Contract was signed. This is my first concept thread. I made Crests and Kits with Paint.Net, Inkscape, and Smart Designer 2. Please, be easy on me. I am by no means an artist or very good at this. As a frequent poster on these forums, I felt the need to come up with something. I am mostly doing this thread for the storyline versus the actual concepts.
