About NK Varazdin

Despite being a small country with a population of under 4 million, Croatia has left an indelible mark on the world stage, securing 3rd and 2nd place finishes in the past two World Cups, a remarkable feat. Varazdin, often referred to as “little Vienna,” boasts a picturesque old town and lies just an hour away from the bustling capital city of Zagreb. This charming setting serves as the backdrop for NK Varazdin, a club that perfectly aligns with Rush’s ambitions.

NK Varazdin has established itself as a breeding ground for emerging stars. The club’s unwavering focus on nurturing young players has resulted in consistent promotions from the youth ranks to the professional team, with several players making their mark in some of Europe’s most prominent leagues. NK Varazdin’s U19 squad stands among Croatia’s elite youth teams, and Rush’s affiliation opens doors for their players to occupy 3 coveted international spots.
