Pool B: Israel, Spain, Turkey, Greece
European Volleyball Confederation still hopes to be able to set up an additional pool with four more teams. This pool would eventually consist of the teams coming from Belarus, Croatia, France and Poland, but still these Federations have to comply with some obligations and namely submit the duly signed TV agreement before being officially registered for the competition. The final deadline for submitting such papers has been set for December 14, 2009 and only if all four National Federations concerned fulfill the pre-determined requirements, this additional Pool will be officially established and the European League will be therefore played with a total of 12 teams.
Final of the 2010 European League will be held in Turkey (venue to be determined).
