The city of Skopje announced it will provide free bus transportation to the airport this afternoon, as Vardar returns from Cologne with the EHF Champions League trophy.

Buses will leave from the Jugodrvo bus station near the GTC mall in downtown Skopje. Two open top buses are provided for the team, in the style typical of the two previous such triumphant returns – for the Macedonian basketball team which ranked 4th in the 2011 European championship and for Vardar who first won the EHF title in 2017.

A separate organized transportation line is put together by the club and its Komiti fans, from their Jane Sandanski base near the Russia hotel. Vardar lands at 18:50, and will arrive at Macedonia Square after a slow procession across the capital.

The city also provided the flight and six million denars (100.000 EUR) as a reward for the team. Vardar is facing significant financial issues mainly as the result of the open attack the Zaev regime is waging against its main sponsor, Russian businessman Sergey Samsonenko.
