Amra Pandžić returns to the Krim family

Amra Pandžić, an experienced goalkeeper and a regular member of the Slovenian national team, is returning to Ljubljana after playing abroad for several years. She started her rich handball career in the Krim family and now she will rejoin the Tigresses and contribute to the success of Adžić's team next season.

In 2007/08 season, Pandžić competed in national competitions with the Krim Mercator and also tried her hand under the European spotlight for the first time. Her European debut took place on 27 October 2007 away at Sävehof. After a successful start to her career with the Ljubljana team, she joined French team Cergy-Pontoise Handball 95 in the 2010/11 season.

Despite taking a break from active sports to study mathematics, the Ljubljana player returned to the handball courts after three years and wore the Žalec jersey. But not for long. The very next season, she played again for Krim Mercator, where she stayed until the last part of the 2018/19 season, finishing it in France, then with Brest.

Between 2019 and 2021, the one of 14 Slovenes who have accumulated more than 100 appearances in the national jersey and was a member of the Turkish team Kostamonu Belediyesi, with whom she played one season in the EHF Champions League and another in the EHF Europan League. She spent her last years with Romanian CS Minaur Baia Mare, from where the 34-year-old goalkeeper will return to her homeland once again.

Alongside Barbara Arenhart and Maja Vojnovič, who also defends for the Slovenian national team, Pandžić will form a strong defensive trio that will undoubtedly be key to the Krim family’s success in the coming season.
