It is not yet the MHB but the Cosmos that is born in 1982. The happy father of this club whose royal destiny nobody imagines then is a unique and endearing character. Jean Paul Lacombe accompanied the incredible rise of the club until his death in 1997, and the revival of the torch by Robert MOLINES, his companion of the first hour.
In 1988, the club changed its name to the MPSC (Montpellier Paillade Sporting Club) and in 1992 it reached the first division with a brand new name that will make legend: «Montpellier Handball». Two years later (in 1994) the MHB, now coached by Patrice Canayer, won its first French Champion title.
This victory marks the starting point of a unique history in French sport. In the space of 25 years, the MHB will furnish its trophy room with 42 titles: 14 French Champion titles, 13 French Cups, 10 League Cups, 3 Champions Trophies and 2 legendary Champions League won in 2003 and 2018.
