    Pool C: Spain, Greece, Austria, Norway

    Pool D: Slovakia, Finland, Montenegro, Kosovo

    Pool E: Hungary, France, Israel, Denmark

    Pool F: Slovenia, Czech Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Latvia

  • what's the format? the 23 teams above will fight for 12 spots for the finals?

    Yes. 2 of each pool will advance.


  • So one of Belarus, Switzerland or Estonia will be out. All of them were in 2019 edition.

  • As far as I understand it, CEV intends to do qualifiers in late summer, but for the case that it's not possible there yet, they have already fixed dates for January as alternative. They'll take a final decision soon: https://www.cev.eu/News.aspx?NewsID=30733&ID=5

    OK. I just assumed it would be the same period for all (either August for all pools or January for all pools).:)

  • Spanish federation president said in an interview that men would play late summer and women probably in january

  • Maybe if all (3 or) 4 countries in one pool agree that their respective conditions allow a somewhat adequate preparation, then they can go for the early date (and if not, then for the later date)? Anyway, if true, might still be a bit better for Switzerland to play all the matches in Belarus than in Estonia (assuming Belarus is the favorite to win anyway).

  • Beautiful and picturesque presentation of host countries and official logo of upcoming EuroVolley 2021.
