Germany became the first team to qualify for the quarter-finals of the 2019 CEV European Men’s Volleyball Championship.


Vice-champions Germany are through to quarter-finals of the 2019 EuroVolley.

The team coached by Andrea Giani outplayed co-hosts the Netherlands in four sets in front of the packed stand at the Omnisport hall in Apeldoorn (3,200 spectators). It was partially 25-17, 25-22, 30-32, 25-23. Thus, Germany prevented “Oranje“ to qualify for the top 8 even after 10 years.

Germany have finally had their star player György Grozer at his best. The opposite hitter struggled with a calf injury in the pool stage. He scored 20 points for his team, while Tobias Krick made 5 kill blocks and 83% attack (10/12). Nimir Abdel-Aziz poured in 29 points for the Dutch side.


Russia gave no chance to Greece to become the second team to advance to the quarter-finals. They also maintained the invincibility in the tournament (6-0).

In the match that took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the “Zbornaya“ ran over rivals in straight sets in only 71 minutes of a play, partially 25-16, 25-15 and 25-16.

Dmitriy Volkov led defending champions with 18 points, while Ivan Iakovlev set up 4 kill blocks.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
