As Italian media reported, silver medalists of the 2017 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League, Imoco Volley Conegliano, acquired last remained wild card for this year's edition of a tournament of the best clubs in the world.



The 2017 Champions League Final Four hosts and also runners-up Imoco got the last remained wild card for the FIVB World Club Championship in Kobe, Japan, May 8-14, 2017.

As all seven participants of the World Club Championship were known from earlier, the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) left one vacant for the end of the Champions League F4 in Treviso, Italy, and filled it with Italian side Imoco, who lost the final of the tournament to VakıfBank İstanbul from Turkey.

This also means that Italian Volleyball Federation will have to change the format of the national championship (Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile Samsung Gear Volley Cup) playoff finals in case Imoco advances there.

If Imoco eliminate Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena in the semis, the playoff finals will be played to three instead of to five wins. So, in case Imoco go to the series for the gold medal, it wil be played on May 1, May 3 and May 5. If not, it will be played according to the previously arranged schedule: May 1, May 3, May 6, May 11 and May 14.
