Azerbaijan poised to host historic 2017 women’s EuroVolley
2017 CEV Volleyball European Championship - Women

Baku, Azerbaijan, June 29, 2017. Azerbaijan’s Volleyball and sports community are counting the days down towards September 22, when the ‘Land of Fire’ will host the Final Round of the 2017 women’s EuroVolley, a truly historic premiere for Azerbaijan and their neighbours and co-hosts from Georgia.

CEV Vice President and Treasurer Özkan Mutlugil has travelled to Azerbaijan to visit the venues of the tournament – Baku and Ganja/Göygöl – and have a series of high-profile meetings with the President of the Azerbaijan Volleyball Federation, Mr Javid Gurbanov, and other members of the National Organising Committee.

Mr Mutlugil praised Azerbaijan and the work they have done so far for the development of Volleyball in the Caucasus region: “Baku successfully played host to the 2015 European Games as well as to the 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games. Azerbaijan are ready and willing to host more major international competitions. The 2017 women’s EuroVolley will be something truly special and provide all teams and fans with an unforgettable experience. I am confident that Azerbaijan will deliver a real Volleyball party for all involved.”

During his stay in Azerbaijan, Mr Mutlugil inspected the iconic Baku National Gymnastics Arena, which will host the matches in Pool A and C plus all Playoffs, quarter-final, semi-final and final matches, with the gold medal winners to be crowned on October 1, 2017.

Azerbaijan Volleyball Federation President Javid Gurbanov commented: “We have been working very hard so far and have developed a close cooperation with many partners. Azerbaijan will be doing their best to deliver an excellent competition and a high-level championship.”
