Gyula Gál (born 18 August 1976 in Várpalota)[1] is a Hungarian handball player, currently playing for RK Zagreb and the Hungarian national team.

He made his international debut on 15 March 1999 against France.[2]

Gál suffered a torn knee ligament in April 2009 and since then he was struggling to fight back into the first team of MKB Veszprém KC and was also missing from the national team selection. To get more playing minutes and to win back his form, he was loaned to Tatabánya-Carbonex KC in October 2010.[3]

However, this loan spell was cut short as he was signed by RK Zagreb in January 2010. The Croatian side was in need of a line player, as Frank Løke has been suspended for nine months by the European Handball Federation for signing a contract with both Skjern and Zagreb at the same time, and first choice pivot Igor Vori moved to HSV Hamburg during the summer transfer window. Gál's contract runs till June 2012.[4]
