Paris vs Limoges

Limoges Hand 87

At the beginning of the 2000s, the Limousin Handball League had the ambition to create a top-level club. Thus, in 2005, HB Limoges was created following the merger of the clubs ASPTT Limoges and CAPO Limoges, becoming Limoges Hand 87 the following year. The 2014-15 season then marked a turning point in the history of the club, with the title of National 1 champion, synonymous with a move up to the Pro League for the first time. At the end of the 2019-20 Pro Ligue season, the Limoges players were promoted to the Lidl Starligue, after finishing second in the standings behind Cesson Rennes Métropole Handball.

In terms of prize list, the club has 1 National 2 and 1 National 1 championship title. Their best result in the French Cup, as well as in the League Cup, remains to this day a Round of 16.

The first team is coached by Tarik Hayatoune since the 2019-20 season.
