- There is a lot of talk about the atmosphere in Skopje. I wanted to come and see that - "Lekip" journalist Ian Hildwein told us.

Although the hall in SC "Jane Sandanski" was not filled to the last place due to the decision of the commission for infectious diseases, the halls to be filled up to 30 percent of capacity, support for Vardar handball players was not lacking.
