Metz HB (Metz Handball) is the name of a French handball club from Metz, capital of Lorraine. The club has teams for both women and men, but especially the professional women's team is the most successful in French handball since the beginning of the 1990s. This team currently competes in the French Women's Handball First League.
The women's team have won a total of 19 French Championships (all time record), seven French Cup Championships (all time record), eight French League Cup Championships (all time record), and was European Women's EHF Cup runner-up in 2013.
The club was established in 1967 under the name of ASPTT Metz, but it was not until 1986 the women's team was promoted to the best league in France. Manager of the team at that time was French Olivier Krumbholz, who later became national manager for France. The club was renamed twice as Handball Metz Métropole in 2002 and later as Metz Handball in 2009 (current name).
Since the promotion, Metz HB has had overwhelming success with 19 National Championships from 1989–2014, which is the all time record in the French Women's First League Championship.
