Radoslav Antl says sports cannot exist without fans

“Fans should be highly important for any sportsman. You do not play handball only for yourselves. You can be the best in the world, but if there is no one to encourage and support you, it would not have any meaning. Sports cannot exist without fans. They are extremely important. We need them every time we play. We could not play our games in Tatran Handball Arena without them. We need to be driven forward by them. We need their support in all four competitions we play in. Every one of us wishes to play in a crowded hall and give excellent performance and offer fans unforgettable experiences. I am always glad when fans come to speak to me after the games. Or if I meet them somewhere in the city and have possibility to discuss something they are interested in. That is the reward, some kind of feedback that you do your job really well as a professional. Those people really appreciate your professional qualities.

I would like to give a message to our fans: come to the sports hall and support our team. The more fans come and encourage us, the better performance we can deliver. It is not a phrase, but a pure fact – our fans are our eight player in the stands and we feel their support on the court.”
