BERLIN Recycling Volleys and Chemik POLICE to host CL Final Four tournaments
2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League / 2015 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men & Women

Luxembourg, January 29, 2015. BERLIN Recycling Volleys and Chemik POLICE are the hosts of the men’s and women’s Final Four tournaments that in late March/early April will provide the absolute climax for a record-breaking 2015 edition of the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League. The venues of the Finals were announced on Thursday morning by CEV President André Meyer shortly before the DOL for the Playoffs 12 of Europe’s elite club competition.

The magnificent Max-Schmeling-Halle, which hosted the semis and final matches of the 2013 CEV Volleyball European Championship – Women only 17 months ago will welcome the local heroes of BERLIN Recycling Volleys and another three world-class teams for the men’s Final Four that is scheduled for March 28-29. The final act of the men’s competition will be taking place in Germany for the very first time since the inception of the CEV Volleyball Champions League back in the 2000/2001 season.

The women’s Finals will then follow on April 4-5 in Szczecin, Poland, and will be hosted by Chemik POLICE as the reigning Polish champions are making this year their first appearance in the Champions League. The last act of the women’s competition is returning to Poland 12 years after the city of Pila hosted the 2003 Finals won by France’s RC CANNES.   

The winners of this year’s CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League will get the right to represent Europe at the next edition of the FIVB Volleyball Club World Championships which are due to take place in early May in Zurich and in Brazil (venue TBC) for women and men respectively.

The DOL for the Playoffs 12 was held under the supervision of CEV President André Meyer and Mrs Riet Ooms, President of the European Cups Commission (ECC), starting with the women’s division.
Mrs. Ooms drew the 12 teams qualified to the knock-out phase making sure that – as per the Official Regulations – only two teams from the same country can make it to the Final Four tournament and also by avoiding that clubs from the same League Round pool are playing each other once more in the Playoffs 12.

The draw for the Playoffs 12 scheduled for February 10-12 (home matches) and 17-19 (away matches) reads as follows (teams listed first in the ties reported here below will play the first match at home):

Dinamo KAZAN (RUS) vs VakifBank ISTANBUL (TUR)
DRESDNER SC (GER) vs Fenerbahce Grundig ISTANBUL (TUR)

Azeryol BAKU (AZE) vs Unendo Yamamay BUSTO ARSIZIO (ITA)

The Playoffs 6 will then follow in early March (home matches: 3-5; away matches: 10-12) before three teams eventually join hosts Chemik POLICE for the Final Four tournament.  

The draw for the men’s Playoffs 12 reads as follows (the schedule is the same as for the women’s competition and teams listed first in the ties reported here below will play the first match at home):
