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).
Finals will be held in Karlovy Vary, Czech Rep.
