General comments on refereeing and rules

In this section, the IHF Playing Rules and Referees Commission explains the most important aspects of the current Rules of the Game using comprehensive video analyses of international tournaments, continental championships and national top-level league matches.

The section also provides educational videos for both referees and interested coaches or players. These topically structured videos feature different match situations which can help to explain the correct refereeing decisions by referring to the rules that apply in each situation.

The main objective of this section is to systematically help referees with the consistent interpretation of the current Rules of the Game.
