The way this season in German Men’s volleyball started, it is going to be the one in which VfB Friedrichshafen will rule!



In a highly anticipated German Men’s volleyball Cup final in „SAP Arena“ in Mannheim, Friedrichshafen beat the trophy holders and also national champions Berlin Recycling Volleys 3-1 (33-31, 25-21, 25-27, 30-28). Vital Heynen’s side took 14th trophy in the national Cup, which is an absolute German record. Friedrichshafen once again proved to be better than arch-rivals BR Volleys this season. Besides defeating them in the national Cup final, Friedrichshafen beat BR Volleys in the national championship one time as well, claiming leadership in the standings. The most efficient players in Friedrichshafen in today’s match were Czech Michal Finger with 26 points and Bosnian Armin Mustedanović with 18.



Allianz Stuttgart has won the Women’s Cup in a dramatic final game against SSC Schwerin, overcoming 0-2 in sets, partially 22-25, 21-25, 25-23, 25-15, 15-12! This was the third success in the German Cup for Stuttgart, after taking the trophy in 2011 and 2015. The best players of the winning team were Czech Michaela Mlejnková with 20 points and Hungarian Renáta Sándor with 19.

Despite an amazing attendance in today’s Cup final of 10.143 spectators, last season’s record was not topped. In the 2016 final, more than 12,000 spectators watched BR Volleys and Dresdner grabbing their trophies.
