CL debut to spark Volleyball fever in Omsk
News from the clubs

Omsk, Russia, October 16, 2013. Russia’s Omichka OMSK REGION is one of the rookies who this year will debut in Europe’s elite club competition, the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League. Omichka finished the last edition of the Russian league in third place thereby getting the right to represent their country – together with Dinamo KAZAN and Dinamo MOSCOW – in the competition whose start is set for next week. Omichka is the very first women’s Volleyball team from Siberia starring in the CEV Volleyball Champions League after their “neighbours” of Lokomotiv NOVOSIBIRSK won the men’s trophy last year.
Omichka OMSK REGION will be playing their first match on October 24 in Baku taking there on last year’s silver medallists Rabita BAKU. The first home game against DRESDNER SC of Germany is scheduled for October 31 at the “V. Blinov” sports complex, the venue that hosted last year’s men’s final four.  

After that the “cats” as the players of Omichka are nicknamed will travel to France to play there on November 26 another rookie, BEZIERS Volley, before hosting that team at the “V. Blinov” sports complex on December 4. The prelims will continue with the away match in Dresden on December 11 and come to a close one week later as Omichka will host Rabita for the sixth and last leg. The first and second-ranked teams at the end of the League Round will move to the Playoffs 12 and from there try to pocket a ticket to the final four tournament scheduled for early March 2014.

On Thursday, October 17, the Omsk Regional House of Journalists will host a press conference where Omichka head coach Zoran Terzic, team captain Elena Yureva (Hendzel) and their superstar Natalya Mammadova will all discuss their goals and expectations with only one week to go for the start of the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women.
