Vardar’s triumph makes headlines around the world
HC Vardar wrote a heroic story on Sunday. Clinching their second VELUX EHF Champions League title was one of the most emotional moments the sports has seen.
Beating Telekom Veszprém HC 27:24 in the final at the VELUX EHF FINAL4 made fans cry for joy - and not just in the LANXESS arena of back home in Skopje.
Vardar’s golden weekend in Cologne has gained a lot of international media coverage. Of course in North Macedonia and in leading sports newspapers like L’Equipe in France, but also in many other countries which are represented in Vardar’s squad, like Brazil (Rogerio Moraes), Croatia (Igor Karacic and Ivan Cupic), Germany (Christian Dissinger), Latvia (Dainis Kristopans) or Slovenia (Stas Skube).
Here is a small selection of the headlines:
North Macedonia - Nove Makedonija
France - L’Equipe
Brazil - Olimpíada Todo Dia
Croatia - 24 Sata
Germany - Kicker
Latvia - Diena
Slovenia - Delo
