Thursday, 27 April 2017

Vardar became the first ever Macedonian team to qualify for the VELUX EHF FINAL4, and the first ever team from a former Yugoslavian country to be part of the pinnacle event in club handball.

The roof of the Jane Sandanski Arena was struggling to stay on when the final whistle was blown. Five days after winning 26:24 at Flensburg, the Macedonian champions proved their strength with a demolition of the 2014 VELUX EHF Champions League champions.

The 35:27 (15:10) victory was a moment for Vardar fans to remember, but it was the last international match of Ljubomir Vranjes as Flensburg coach, as he will depart to Veszprem after this season.

Vardar made history as the first club ever to be part of both men's and women's FINAL4 events.

For the sixth time in eight FINAL4 events a family member of the Dujshebaevs will be at Cologne. After five participations of father Talant, now son Alex will try to win the trophy.
