CEV Champions League 2024

  • After the surprise, that Russia (and Belorus) are still banned from the European Cups despite a Russia friendly Serbian presidentship and most powerful associations are also more pro than against Russia, we can tell now most (pool stage) participants of the competition to come, the complete draw also of pool stage will be already in July 2023 on 19th:

    ITA: Imoco CONEGLIANO, Vero Volley MILANO, Savino del Bene SCANDICCI

    TUR: Fenerbahce, Eczacisbasi and VakifBank, all from ISTANBUL (defending champions VakifBank less high positioned in the draw therefore)

    POL: LKS Commercecon LODZ, DeveloRes RZESZOW, Budowlani LODZ (the latter inherits a berth from RUS)



    UKR: ??? (Prometey DNJEPRO withdraw in the hosting Czech Extraleague in the last season 2023, it is not clear, if they will be ready or so)

    BUL: Maritza PLOVDIV

    CZE: Kralovo Pole BRNO

    To get 18 for pool stage, some more will be (possibly) in, first of those are:


    SLO: Calcit KAMNIK

    and if required

    FIN: Pölkky KUUSAMO

    Qualification phase of first rounds with additional teams from lower ranked leagues will start at begin of October, the pool stage at begin of November.

  • Without all the (war) turbulences Ukraine might have sent Prometey Dnjepro and Yuchny, but both are non-existant now, I fear, and the others are rather weak (and Russia would have not be banned too of course).

  • Pools C, D and E looks more balanced. I don’t like the idea of best 3 second places…

  • Great... I'll be able to go and see SdB Scandicci vs Eczacibasi and, obviously, I'll be rooting for Eczacibasi... :D:D:D

    Scandicci :down:
