2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Men & Women

Budapest, Hungary, November 2, 2018. As many as 20 teams per gender will contest the pool phase of the 2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League and they all found out their destiny earlier this evening following the Drawing of Lots held at the Hilton Hotel in Budapest. The pool phase (4th Round) will commence on November 20 and continue up until late February to determine the eight teams progressing to the quarterfinals and that will continue their quest for Europe’s most coveted Volleyball crown. The 2019 edition of Europe’s elite club competition will be reaching its climax with the ‘grand finale’ for women and men scheduled for May 18-19, 2019 at a venue TBC. The gold medal winners from the 2018 edition, Russia’s Zenit KAZAN and Turkey’s VakifBank ISTANBUL are vying for an all-time record seventh and fifth continental crown, respectively.
