CEV European League 2018

A new format for the 2018 European League: source. CEV now introduce two tiers - Golden League and Silver League. The two finalists of the Golden League will, unless FIVB decide otherwise again, play in the FIVB Challenger Cup alongside 4 other confederation representatives for a spot or the right to challenge (I don't know, it doesn't say) the weakest 2018 Volleyball Nations League challenger (one among Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, South Korea).

Golden League

Pool A

Belgium
Estonia
Slovakia
Sweden

Pool B

Slovenia
Netherlands
Turkey
Ukraine

Pool C

Finland
Czech Republic
Portugal
Spain

Finals will be held in Karlovy Vary, Czech Rep.

Silver League

Pool A

FYR of Macedonia
Latvia
Austria
Kosovo

Pool B

Belarus
Croatia
Hungary
Albania

Finals will be held in Skopje, FYR of Macedonia.

I don't like many of FIVB's practices and yet another new format for the World (Nations) League might be surplus, but it resulted in a decent European League at least. With Belgium, Slovenia, Estonia, Czech Rep., Finland, Portugal, Slovakia, and Turkey back in business, the otherwise down-trending European League might come to life, in what seems to be the best edition we've had in years. It is a different subject whether teams should be motivated to play under the ever changing FIVB/CEV regulations. But even so, the level should rise. Belgium and Slovenia at least should take it as a preparation for the World Championship. They probably won't care that much about the newly formed FIVB league :D

Surprisingly, there is no Greece, Montenegro, and Romania.

Slovenia will play European League without Urnaut, Pajenk, Sket, Gasparini, Vincic and Ropret, according to CEV site. Maybe they are not so much interested in play Nations Legaue, after what happened this year.

Anyway, they still have a good team. I hope we can see Ziga Stern playing a lot this year. I think he is a good player.

Their pool looks like a group of death. Ukraine, Turkey and Netherlands. Those are not average teams in my opinion.

I think that's a great call from Kovac. They should concentrate on the world championship and I hope they find another good opposite in the process. Gasparini does not seem viable in two more years.

Turkey won 3x2 against Netherlands.

I really like Van Garderen. I hope he can be a start next season in a good team.

I think he will be one of the best OH in near future. He is still young and has a lot to improve but i see a grat potencial in him.

Did he ever play as a receiver before this tournament? :lol: I'd think Teppan would be best suited for the OH role given his biotype, but I might be completely wrong...

Well, whatever we think about it, it seems coach made the right choice. Estonia is leading 2:0 and is on the way to the title. With their good blocking, they are sucking a lot of energy out of czech team, who are playing a bit disappointing, i have to say...

Maybe they just wanted a taller block at 4. Finger hasn't been given that many balls compared to last night it seems.

Thought Czech Rep. would put up a better fight, but oh well...
Seeing Estonia in VNL next year would definitely be interesting, especially considering both Belgium and Slovenia are still out. :whistle: I'm curious to see if they'll be able to beat Korea (most likely) in the Challenger Cup.
