The Egyptian national handball team is the national handball team of Egypt and is controlled by the Egyptian Handball Federation.
The Team's performance in the 90's boosted the sport's popularity in the country and attracted media and official attention, especially after scoring a huge upset against former World champions Romania in the 1995 World Men's Handball Championship held in Iceland.

Egypt also became the first non-European team to reach the World Championship semi-finals in the 2001 Men's tournament that was held in France. The Egyptians dubbed that team the "Dream Team"

Although the team's performance has slumped in recent years, it's still dominant as a regional and continental powern.
