European League Pools determined, prize money increased

932 1

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:


Pool A: Belgium, Estonia, Slovakia, Sweden 
Pool B: Slovenia, The Netherlands, Turkey, Ukraine 
Pool C: Finland, Czech Republic, Portugal, Spain 


Pool A: 
Bulgaria, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Portugal 
Pool B: Croatia, Hungary, France, Finland 
Pool C: Czech Republic, Belarus, Slovakia, Spain 

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.


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

Pool B: Belarus, Croatia, Hungary, Albania


Pool A: Switzerland, Estonia, Sweden, Kosovo

Pool B: Israel, Austria, Georgia, Albania

The prize for the Silver European League is 156,00 euros, while the winners of the competition are taking 50,000 euros.

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.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
