Montichiari and PalaGeorge to host women’s CL Final Four in early April
2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League - Women

Luxembourg, February 8, 2016. The Final Four Tournament of the 2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women scheduled for April 9-10 will be taking place at PalaGeorge in Montichiari, Italy. After checking the facilities available at PalaRadi in Cremona, the CEV and organisers Pomì CASALMAGGIORE have agreed on this change with the aim to provide the best conditions for the successful delivery of such a prestigious event that will draw the attention of a global audience.

Italy’s national champions Pomì CASALMAGGIORE started their first ever Champions League campaign earlier this season by upsetting 2015 gold medal winners Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL of Turkey before topping the charts of a highly competitive pool including also Poland’s standout Chemik POLICE. Last week the CEV announced CASALMAGGIORE as hosts of the Final Four Tournament of Europe’s elite competition.

The last act of the women’s Champions League returns to Italy for the first time since 2009 when Colussi Sirio PERUGIA played host to the Final Four where Foppapedretti BERGAMO added yet another title to their showcase.

The venue of the 2016 Final Four, PalaGeorge, is well-known to the Volleyball family since it hosted the home matches of Gabeca MONTICHIARI in Italy’s men’s first division up until 2009 when the club moved to Monza. The competition hall named after the late Indian Volleyball player Jimmy George has also hosted matches of the elite FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix in 2013 (see picture) and will therefore provide the best conditions for a successful organisation and delivery of one of Europe’s premier sporting events.
