Just like every CEV European Championship for youth categories this summer, the 2020 U20 men’s EuroVolley in the Czech Republic didn’t start with all national teams that earned a right to participate due to problems related to the coronavirus.


A night before the 2020 U20 men’s European Championship was to set off in the Czech Republic (cities Brno and Kuřim), two national teams informed CEV of their withdrawal after having players infected with the COVID-19: Turkey and Ukraine. Both sides were put into Pool II.

Italy and Poland staged confident starts of the tournament, sweeping Belgium and Serbia in Pool I. In the same pool, the hosts came back from two sets down against France but lost a tie-break. Antoine Pothron led the “Les Bleus” in scoring with 20 points. Simon Magnin made 4 blocks. Jan Vodička scored 17 points for the Czechs.

The reigning champions Russia prevailed in the neighboring derby over Belarus (3-1), which was the only match scheduled for the opening day in Pool II.

Probably the most retarded sport federation in the whole of Europe, full of grandpas like Boričić making proft without any useful deeds. Another 4 frutiful years of stealing the clubs money. Taking a look at the CEV website layout says it all. Reply
