The drawing of lots was only for the women’s and men’s CEV Cup and Challenge Cup. The draw for the Champions League (male and female) will be held on July 2.

In total, the names of 127 teams from 32 (male) and 30 (female) countries were drawn and the first games will be played on October 24 and 25 with the first round of Men’s Challenge Cup.

The teams from Kosovo will participate in some European Cup for the first time in the history since the FIVB (International Volleball Federation) granted their provisional recognition.

Recall, last season’s winners were: Dinamo Krasnodar (RUS) in Women’s CEV Cup, Dinamo Moscow (RUS) in Men’s CEV Cup, Bursa Büyükşehir Belediyespor (TUR) in Women’s Challenge Cup and Vojvodina NS Seme Novi Sad (SRB) in Men’s Challenge Cup.

Undoubtedly, the toughest pairs of the 1st Round in Women’s CEV Cup are: VC Wiesbaden (GER) – Polski Cukier Muszynianka (POL) and Hermes Volley Oostende (BEL) – Dinamo Krasnodar (RUS).

For example, the derby of the first round in Men’s competition might be between Austrian SK Posojilnica AICH/DOB and Finnish Hurrikaani Loimaa.
