The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) unveiled the schedule for the 2021 EuroVolley Qualifiers for both genders.


The CEV unveiled calendar for both men’s and women's 2021 European Qualifiers, which will be modified in case the situation with the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

Initially, qualifications were scheduled for late August and early September 2020. However, according to the new schedule, only a small number of matches will be taking place in that period as most matches are postponed to early January 2021.

Due to the many restrictions still in place across Europe due to the coronavirus pandemic and in order to reduce trips for teams, the CEV changed the competition format a bit. Namely, originally planned home and away matches in each pool will be replaced with tournaments, each hosted by one nation.

A total of 12 teams per gender will qualify from those tournaments to the EuroVolley Final Rounds, joining the four organizers and eight teams already qualified as per the final standing of the 2019 edition. This means that, in the men’s competition, 7 pool winners plus 5 runners-up will qualify for the Final Round. As for women, 6 pool winners and all 6 runners-up will make it to the EuroVolley.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

Vargas chooses nothing because neither turkish nor other federation invited her to play in their nt, except for the serbs. she is neither an egonu (italian born african) nor an ismailoglu (bosnian born turk) and vargas may damage the chemistry of an nt. however terzic, her coach for years, is close to her and may be covinced to adapt her to the serbian team.

we must focus on 2 points: this 'veil of secrecy' and reaction of people in the website.

serbs surely kept things secret,as they were afraid if turks discovered their intention they would also made an offer to her which would ruin serbs'dreams.
but this 'veil of secrecy' may cause big drouble to terzic and fenerbahce may fire him and even vargas next year...but these are my personal opinions. lets wait and see.

more interesting is after fake news that vargas would play for turkey drove some people in the worldofvolley mad, they screamed like 'scandalous....must be prohibited....big fraud', and now i see these crusader-minded idiots keep silence. :D Reply
