The Italians remain the absolute pre-favorite for the crown also this year going for a possible poker.
“We hoped to get a good draw but after finishing only second in our group our chances were quite limited” says head coach Vital Heynen.
“Anyway this draw is a great challenge as we can only win. It will be a great opportunity for our team to play against world stars such as Osmany Juantorena and Matey Kaziyski” he adds.
Noliko will open the series next January 31 by hosting TRENTINO in the splendid “Lotto Dôme”.
