Discover something new - Ljubljana to host Volleyball match on a river!
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men

Ljubljana, Slovenia, August 13, 2019. Something truly unique, different and spectacular is coming up in the centre of Ljubljana, Slovenia next week. As part of the promotion for the upcoming EuroVolley 2019, which will take place in Ljubljana in September, the Volleyball Federation of Slovenia will organise the first international Volleyball match on a river! On Thursday, August 22 in the evening, we will be witnessing an event that has never happened in the world of Volleyball before.

From the Ljubljanica river embankment, fans will follow the match between former Volleyball world stars, which will be taking place on a floating field in the middle of the river. The playing surface will be flanked by glowing lines that will mark the playing field, and the unique evening atmosphere will offer to the spectators the feeling of watching the Volleyball players as they move just above the water’s surface. It is a design and implementation of a Volleyball court that has never been done before.

“We are convinced that the event will attract a lot of interest in a wider media space, also because some former top-level Volleyball players will be present,” the organisers said.

In the EuroVolley 2019 ambassadors’ match, former stars Bas van de Goor (the Netherlands), Guillaume Samica (France), Frank Depestele (Belgium), and Tomi Šmuc (Slovenia) will compete at the water level.

The European stars match will be followed by a game between EuroVolley official partners and at the end of the unique evening, some of the best Slovenian Beach Volleyball players will compete on the Ljubljanica River as well.
