Pan American Handball Championship

Short History

     The Pan American Handball Championship was a men's international handball competition that was governed by PATHF. It was a competition for the men's national handball teams of North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean. The first edition was held in 1980 in Mexico. Also called PanAmericano had been played biannually, with some deviations, and also served as a qualifying tournament for the IHF World Championship. Last edition was held in 2018, and, in the same year, IHF suspended PATHF.
