Noddesbo is one of the foreign players who has had most impact on the FC Barcelona handball section

Jesper Noddesbo was born in Herning (Denmark) on 23 October 1980, the pivot has represented his country at every possible level.

Noddesbo started out playing youth handball for Hauge GIF. Aged 19 he joined Team Tvis Holstebro, spending five seasons at the club (1999-2004). His next stop was Kolding, also in Denmark, where he won his first major titles. He scored 48 goals in the last edition of the Champions League before joining Barça in 2007. Despite not winning anything in his first two seasons with the Club, Noddesbo gradually became a key member of Xavi Pascual's team. In recent years the Dane has been at the centre of the FC Barcelona handball section's remarkable run of success. 

A long time Danish international, Noddesbo is one of the most cherished foreign players ever to have played for Barça. A firm fan favourite, he was a leading figure in winning all seven competitions in the season 2014/15.

He acts as a attacking and defensive centre, and is characteristically quick and skilful. He is an imposing presence on the court and is not afraid of anything when it comes to stopping opposing attackers. His experience at the top level is another vital aspect of his contribution to the team.
