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.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
