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:

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.

ARG M: Legendary Marcos Milinkovic not coach of UNTreF anymore

Sorry but Marcos doesn't left Untref. He is back at the position of Sport Manager. Reply

USA W: Kiraly called 26 players including Murphy

Re: @rivers
You're right about the three american opposites. Unfortunately, Lowe is retired. Murphy is a great player and so is Fawcett, who played a key role in Dentil/Praia winning the Brazilian Superliga yesterday for the first time yesterday. I hope she stays in Brazil for the next season, like Carli Lloyd who is going to play for the same team. Talking about transfers, it seems that we (the Brazilian league) will lose Sonja Newcombe and Destinee Hooker who were playing for Minas. What a pity. Reply

Kim Yeon-Koung for WoV - "I still didn't make any decisions for next season"

The major problems why there have not been more great / talented Asians who played great and to their potentials in European leagues are language barriers and cultural differences. Asians are thought to conform, not to be aggressive, be nice, do not complain if possible, etc. Also there is still racial overtone against Asians in European leagues. Reply
