Slovenia (SLO)

With Ljubljana and Celje hosting preliminary round matches, and the main round and final weekend matches continuing in Ljubljana, Slovenia is one of the three nations co-hosting the Women's EHF EURO 2022.

At home, they want to achieve their best EHF EURO result, which is why Dragan Adzic took over as head coach two years before the competition. The Montenegrin expert, who climbed to the top of the podium with Montenegro in 2012, had a mission of building a new, stronger Slovenia for this special event.

The last time Slovenia played more than three matches at the EHF EURO was back in 2004, when they achieved their best EHF EURO result – finishing fourth. It is no wonder that a place in the main round is the first goal for Slovenia, who dream of going even further and creating history.

''Our group is challenging; every opponent has quality. It is well known there are no easy games at the EHF EURO. My players and I are aware of it, but we also know that we can play against anyone. We are the hosts and we are looking forward to the start of the competition," said head coach Dragan Adzic.

Slovenia's goals are clear, but it will not be easy, despite playing on their home court in Celje. Group B will see them playing against two strong Scandinavian teams, Denmark and Sweden. The last match of the group will have a more special touch to it. Closing their performances in Celje, Slovenia will face their former head coach Uros Bregar when they play Serbia.

After spending six years at the helm of Slovenia, Bregar knows the players very well. It will be an additional challenge for Adzic. With a mixture of superstars, experienced leaders, promising young players and Adzic's way of understanding handball, Slovenia's fans in the Zlatorog Arena are in for a treat. With a complete, injury-free squad, Slovenia can reach their desired goal of achieving their best ranking at the EHF EURO.
