ZOK RIJEKA started out its European campaign this year by losing twice (0:3 away and 1:3 at home) to Switzerland’s Volley KÖNIZ in the first round of the CEV Volleyball Cup to be relegated to the CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup. Still ZOK RIJEKA deserves much respect as the club has been continuously playing in the Cups since the 1994/1995 season and participated three times in the very elitist Champions League.
As they wish to make it to the next round of the competition, team captain Imke Wedekind and her teammates will try to claim a positive result already in their away match in Croatia after showing good quality and great determination already in the last round of the Bundesliga this past Saturday while hosting SC POTSDAM. Back from Croatia, Aurubis HAMBURG will travel directly to Stuttgart to play there Allianz MTV in the next round of the national league.
