Merkur Maribor won the first title of the Slovenian men’s volleyball national champions in 28 years, for the first time since the 1992/93 season and the 3rd time in total in the club history.
The playoff finals of the 2020/21 Sportklub 1A. DOL between them and ACH Volley Ljubljana served real drama, as Maribor were 2 matches down in the series but then staged a comeback and prevailed in Game 5 at home in the tie-break, partially 29:31, 25:19, 25:16, 24:26, and 15:12, winning the series by a 3-2.
They, thus, broke the 16-year dominance of ACH Volley in the national championship.
Rok Možič and Alen Šket led Maribor in decisive match with 27 and 25 points respectively.
