After two-weeks of working on their physical condition, Vardar's players will start playing friendly matches to set up their shape for the beginning of the SEHA Gazprom and the Champions' League. They will play 3 friendly matches in Trebinje.
Besides Vardar, five other teams will arrive in the resort "Grad Sunca" – Borac Banja Luka, Leotar Trebinje, Metaloplastika, Butan Izola and Izvigjach. Within the 3 days of the tournament, 2 matches will be played in each group and one match for placement.
Vardar shares the group with Borac Banja Luka and the host Leotar. We will play our matches tomorrow (Friday), and we will be free on Saturday. Placement matches will be played on Sunday. We will be in Trebinje until 12.08, and then we will go back to Skopje.
Tomorrow (Friday) at 15:00 we will play against Borac Banja Luka and at 21:00 against the host Leotar.
The host is especially satisfied to have the European champion within the 2nd edition of this tournament. The trophy won in Cologne is especially interesting for all visitors that would like to take a photo with it and the players.
The tournament will be the first chance for all new players to integrate into the team. Marko Kizic and Alen Kjosevski will not play this tournament, because they play the cadet WC in Skopje. Dejan Kukulovski, Vasko Gogov and David Gashovski from Vardar's 2nd team are in Trebinje and they will spend the whole preparation team with Vardar's seniors.
At the end of this month, Vardar will go to Saudi Arabia to play the Super Globe. SEHA Gazprom League matches start at the beginning of September, and the Champions' League in the middle of the same month.
