CEV Men’s European Championship 2019 - hosts France, Slovenia, Belgium and the Netherlands

  • I want to start the discussion about streams, available channels, and TV rights in advance in order to avoid confusion once the tournament starts. And I am deliberately putting this here so people can read it if they visit the thread looking for info at any time.


    How's the experience so far been for the female ECH? Do we know who and what will be shown where for the men's event? Do we need the EuroVolleyTV subscription or are there tons of geo-blocked countries again and we'll have to rely on some poor-quality online streams? Will we get access to full-length matches on demand?


    For instance, just out of curiosity, I checked that today's match between Serbia and Bulgaria in the female event won't be shown on EuroVolleyTV either in Bulgaria or in Germany (where I will have to try and find some Sport1+ exclusive stream). Do we already know the list of blocked countries for the men's ECH and is it going to be valid for all matches?


    Any info and personal experience are welcome! Also, the same concerning the coverage by RAI, Polsat, and the likes.

  • So just curious, who's the favorite going into the competition? Russia is very convincing since their VNL win last July, also Poland is now on another level with Leon. I think those two teams are a cut above the rest. What do you guys think?

  • Leon (and I think Heynen as well) said that their goal is gold. I think Poland might be very strong during this competition.


    Also I won’t be surprised if Kurek will be back there as he is training normally with the team already.

    I think the draw will let Russia and Poland meet in SF which is a bummer, let's see how well Leon adapts to his new team

    Correct, if Poland and Russia will win their groups, then they will meet in semis. Poland or Russia will have to be at 3rd or 4th place in their group to avoid themselves.

  • Bulgaria - Greece 3-0

    Turkey - Russia 0-3

    Portugal - Italy 0-3

    Finland - Macedonia 3-0

    Slovenia - Belarus 3-1

    France - Romania 3-0

    Rep Ceka - Ukraina 3-2

    Serbia - Germany 3-1

    Estonia - Poland 0-3

    Netherland - Montenegro 3-0

  • Just realized, Russia will be in Pool C together with Finland. I wonder how Sammelvuo feels competing against his previous team which he was at the helm as head coach just last year during WCH.. I wonder if the Finn players feel betrayed by this ;)

  • Not so many users was interested in men's Olympics qualifications so I thought that men's volleyball is less popular here... but if you would like to...

    Yeah we should get the discussion going as I feel men's volleyball is more enjoyable to discuss s w/o the toxic drama some users have over on the women's side :lol:

  • From Turkey's roster, burutay subaşı is excluded because of his injury.


    Also Yasin Aydın, Oğulcan Yaygın, Çağatay Durmaz and Ertuğrul Gazi are out. They are replaced by Burak Güngör, Selçuk Keskin, Vahit Emre Savaş and Faik Samet Gunes.


    Having such an experienced setter like Selçuk might upgrade the team. Also Vahit and Faik iş a better mb duo than our previous ones. I hope they can reach quarter finals 🙏
