USA’s Domagoj Srsen signs with German Club, HSG Krefeld

Domagoj Srsen on defense for Team USA at the 2019 PANAM Games

USA National Team athlete, Domagoj Srsen has newly signed with German club, HSG Krefeld. Krefeld plays in the 3rd Division (Central Pool), which has currently suspended operations, but later this spring there are plans to resume the competition with an abbreviated season. Srsen, who is primarily a defensive specialist, has played for several higher level clubs including Hannover in the German HBL and Zagreb in the EHF Champions League. Most recently he played with Wilhlemshaven during the 2019-20 season where he played a key role in their promotion to the 2nd division. According to sources, Srsen was not resigned due in part to an injury he sustained this past summary and budget limitations. The tentative plans for the season restart include an abbreviated competition specifically for 3rd Division clubs seeking promotion to the 2nd Division and the Srsen signing is intended to shore up their defense.

Srsen, who is 30 years old, first played for the U.S. in 2011 and has represented the U.S. at both the 2011 and 2019 PANAM Games. He was also on the 20 Man U.S. roster that would have taken part in the 2021 World Championships if the U.S. had not withdrawn from the competition due to too many positive COVID tests. The Srsen signing will mean that two Americans will be on the Krefeld roster as Paul Skorupa also plays for the Eagles.
