Club careerEdit

In July 2012 Šporar transferred from Interblock to Olimpija Ljubljana. In the 2015–16 Slovenian PrvaLiga season, Šporar was named as team captain. During the first half of the club's season he played 18 PrvaLiga games and scored 17 goals.

On 8 December 2015 Basel announced that Šporar had signed a four-and-a-half year contract up until the end of June 2020.[1] He made his league debut for Basel on 14 February 2016 in the 4–0 away win against Grasshopper Club coming in as substitute in the 70th minute.[2] Šporar injured himself during warm-up before the away match against Saint-Étienne on 18 February 2016. He had to undergo a surgery which kept him out for the rest of the 2015–16 FC Basel season, in which his team won the 2015–16 Swiss Super League championship, their seventh national title in a row.[3][4]

International careerEdit

In November 2016 he received his first call-up to the senior Slovenia squad for matches against Malta and Poland.[5] He debuted against Malta, replacing Milivoje Novaković late in the second half.[6]
