FC Midtjylland has won the Danish title again, after last season they had to play qualification to get into the groups of CL, and they lost against Radnicki Kragujevac in the semis. Now they are directly qualified to the Groups, seeded on the first place of the group and as a consequence getting a really strong group with Vardar, the Macedonian power team, two times CL-winner from Győr and a more modest Hypo this time.

Ida Alstad left the club, heading back to Byaasen in Norway. The Dutch playmaker Nycke Groot has left the club and landed exactly at Győr, which is one of the opponents this time. Line Jörgensen plays for Bucharest now, and specialist says that these two players were the most important in last years FCM team, which managed to win both Danish League and CWC against Fleury.d

Newcomers are not exactly unknown players themselves: Louise Burgaard (Viborg), Veronica Kristiansen (Glassvaerket), Ana Vojcic (Randers), Johanna Ahlm (Esbjerg) – the team has got reinforcements on every backcourt position and Serbian goalkeeper Ana Vojcic will backup Sabine Englert between the sticks.

Even the team is a bit weakened , headcoach Helle Thomsen will surely find some good combinations this season also, and is not to forget that FC Midtjylland has already been in the F4 once, like a team with the smaller budget, only with a team and a coach which never gives up.

The squad:

Goalkeepers: Sabine Englert, Ana Vojcic, Stephanie Andersen, Stephanie Rassmussen, Frederikke Siggard

Backplayers: Sabine Jakobsen, Stine Jörgensen, Johanna Ahlm, Louise Burgaard, Veronica Kristiansen, Dite Aaen, Pauline Boegelund, Karina Andersen, Jane Mejlvang, Simone Petersen,
