The CEV's European league will feature 20 teams, divided into two leagues: Golden European League and Silver European League, both in men's and women's competition.

 

Each of these leagues will have 12 teams. Let's start with the Golden European League. These are the national teams that will compete in this competition:

Men

The top two teams from the Golden European League will qualify to the FIVB Challenger Cup – whose eventual winners will contest home and away playoff matches against the lowest-ranked from the four Challengers featuring in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League, with a spot in the 2019 edition of the elite FIVB competition at stake,” announce CEV.

The prize money has been increased compared to the last year - the total sum is 413,000 euros, while the winner will get a prize of 125,000 Euros.

Silver European League will feature eight teams per gender, playing home and away matches as well.

Men

Pool A: Former Y.R. of Macedonia, Latvia, Austria, Kosovo

It still makes no sense to put neither Belgium nor Slovenia in the first group.

Re: @former_player No they don’t belong because they weren’t invited and that has to mean something. NVL is uppon invitation tournament

Re: @Axe The decision who will be a member of World League should be based on quality and results, not a subjective invitation for reasons that have nothing to do with sports. Unfortunately, FIVB completely lost compass with their desire to experiment without any reason.
