Asia Men Handball Championship is disputed between the teams from East Asia - South Korea, Japan, China and teams from the Gulf - Kuwait, Qatar , Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. In the last years Iran emmerged also as a contender. There is a big rivalry between the Continental areas. In the Gulf Handball is the second team sport after Football, so there are some very ambitious teams - particularly Kuwait. Altough South Korea through the years has been one of the best teams in the World, for them is most dificult to win Asian Championship than to make a good participation in World Champs or Olympic Games. Some times controversal refering had a big role in these tournaments. Because of the rivalry between 1995 and 2000 there was no tournaments.
