Until 1984, no one knew about the game of handball in Pakistan. This game was first introduced by Mr. Muhammad Shafiq who was an International Athlete. He had returned from West Germany after completing his studies.

During the 20th National Games at Faisalabad in 1984, an exhibition match was played between "National Athletics and Fitness Club, Faisalabad" and University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. A large number of people including the late Muhammad Naqi Butt, the then Secretary General of Pakistan Olympic Association, witnessed the match. The match was appreciated and liked. Since then handball has become a popular sport in Pakistan.

In 1985, Pakistan Handball Federation was formed with Mr. Ahsan Alam and Mr. Muhammad Shafiq elected as its President and Secretary respectively who still hold these offices. Pakistan Handball Federation not only organizes National and International events of this game but also conducts International and Olympic solidarity referees and coaches.
