Pools set for the first round of #CEVContinentalCup
2018 – 2020 CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup

Luxembourg, February 4, 2019. On Monday a Drawing of Lots took place at the home of European Volleyball to determine the pool composition for the first stage of the 2018 – 2020 CEV Beach Volleyball Continental cup. There are eight pools for each gender, consisting of four countries, with the exception being pools E and G in the women’s competition. The tournament dates and venues have also been confirmed as these will be played in May and June all across Europe. The winners and runners up of each pool will secure a spot in the second round of the competition.

After the pool host confirmation and announcement in December (click here), now the full list of participants is known and these are as follows:



The first-timers at the tournament will be Armenia, Georgia, Kosovo as well as the women from Moldova, who will step on court to represent their country at the Continental Cup for the first time.

The competition format remains the same as in the previous editions as each country will be represented by two teams per gender and the match results will be counted ‘country vs. country’ instead of ‘team vs. team’. All pools of four will follow the double-elimination competition formula, while the pools consisting of three teams will play a single round robin.

After this first stage of the competition, the second round will follow in May 2020 with the Finals scheduled for 22-28 June, 2020 in the Netherlands.

Athletes who by that time have already qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics through the relevant FIVB Olympic Ranking / the 2019 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships and the FIVB Beach Volleyball Olympic qualifier will not be eligible to compete in the Finals.
