Giani summoned 15 players that will train in Kienbaum, starting from December 26, among which are all players who were in the squad at the recent CEV European Championship. Giani will have to make a difficult decision at the beginning of the next year, after the friendly matches against Australia (January 1-2), to cross out one name from the list since 14 players are the maximum per team in the continental qualifications (January 5-10).
Germany will host the event in Berlin, while its national team will face European champions Serbia, European vice-champions Slovenia, France, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, and the Netherlands. Only the tournament winners will receive the ticket for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Anton Brehme (Lüneburg), Tobias Krick (United Volleys), Moritz Reichert (Berlin), Markus Steuerwald (Friedrichshafen), Julian Zenger (Berlin), Noah Baxpöhler (Toulouse/FRA), Marcus Böhme (Zenit St. Petersburg/RUS), Christian Fromm (Jastrzębski/POL), Georg Grozer (Zenit St. Petersburg/RUS), Simon Hirsch (Vibo/ITA), Lukas Kampa (Jastrzębski/POL), Denis Kaliberda (Modena/ITA), Moritz Karlitzek (Latina/ITA), Ruben Schott (Trefl/POL), and Jan Zimmermann (Maaseik/BEL).
