We continue our presentation of our amazing 8thplayers. Next is Dalibor Sandev, from Skopje, capital of Macedonia. Even though Dalibor did not get enough likes on Be8player Facebook to reach the third, final round, it didn’t stop him from sharing his experience as a fan. Dalibor is 32 years old and his favourite team is Vardar, four time SEHA champions and 2017 EHF Champions League winners.
Even though Dalibor never played handball, he is a big fan of the sport, especially his favourite team. He has many different hobbies, and they are incredibly interesting. Dalibor told us: “I am interested in pathology and forensics in my spare time, so I watch all the TV shows that have something to with that. Also, I love cooking in my free time, love traveling to many interesting places and of course attending sports events“. Since he loves to watch sports, we hope to see him at many more SEHA – Gazprom League matches.
Dalibor’s favourite player is Vardar’s newest signing, Christian Dissinger, who already displayed his incredible talent in Vardar’s jersey. It’s amazing to see new signings blend in so well with their new teams, and also gain support from the fans so quickly.
Dalibor has been Vardar’s fan for a very long time. His most memorable match might be a memorable one for all Vardar fans. It’s the match between two national rivals – Metalurg and Vardar, dating back to April 15th2012. On that day, Vardar became the champions in the first ever SEHA season. The first Final 4 was played in Arena Zagreb, in an amazing match which resulted in a historic trophy for Vardar. Dalibor is a regular in SC Jane Sandanski and all home matches for Vardar. He is there whenever he can be and home matches are rarely missed by Dalibor.
We loved what Dalibor told about his favourite handball memory. It was a tournament everyone put in so much work in organising it – the most recent SEHA – Gazprom League Final 4 in Skopje. Vardar defeated the SEHA trophy and it all came in their home in SC Jane Sandanski Skopje against big rivals PPD Zagreb. Hopefully, the next Final 4 will be even better, and Dalibor and all other fans will get to enjoy it live, supporting their favourite teams!
