The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) released the new ranking list for women’s national teams.


After completion of the 2019 European Women’s Volleyball Championship, in which Serbia retained the title, CEV updated the ranking list for female national teams, relevant for the spots in the European Olympic Qualifier in January 2020.

The hosts, whose name will be announced soon, plus the top seven teams who did not yet qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games from the latest ranking list will contest the Qualifier in January as the last stage of the Olympic qualification process. This is the latest CEV ranking.

Only the winners of the tournament will take part in the Olympics. As CEV published, the latest ranking reflected the results that women’s teams achieved at the last two editions of EuroVolley, the 2018 FIVB World Championship, the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix and 2017 CEV European League.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
