Just like two years ago, this historic victory in the most elite European Handball League will pass without recognition and rewards for the Vardar team by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and the government of the Republic of Macedonia. Then the only thing that the handball champions received from Zaev was a reception, water, coffee and juice, while he received a gold medal from the club and a Vardar jersey.

This year, as the Government said in the brief telephone conversation with Republika, at least for the time being, there is no plan to allocate funds as a reward for the handball players of Vardar. Their official position and statement on the Vardar team were supposed to be sent to the media during the day, but until the publication of the text, the answer was not received.

Not that this award from the Government for this success would change the lives of the Vardar team, but it would have been a good gesture to show that apart from the fact that Vardar has a relationship with the state, the state has a relationship with Vardar, the pride of whole Macedonia.
