By introducing the new format for the 2019 CEV Champions League, the European Volleyball Confederation took care of awarding unprecedented prize money to the Super Finals participants.


A decision from CEV to eliminate Final Four in both competitions and introduce home-and-away semifinal and Super Finals for the Champions League, that was made a year ago, now came with prize money that has never been awarded before in a premier European club contest

The four teams, two Women’s and two Men’s, competing at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany (May 18), will run for a € 1.2 million - € 600,000 per gender (400,000 for the winners and 200,000 for the runners-up).

Why there was no individual awards (such as Best Libero, Best setter....) in the 2019 CEV Champions League?

Re: @Youshen
Probably because the final consisted of only two teams, so a dream team wouldn't really be representative of the champions league and a bit unnecessary, but that's just my opinion :)

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
