Luxembourg, January 18, 2019. A couple of days after the Drawing of Lots held at the iconic Atomium in Brussels, the 24 teams participating at EuroVolley 2019 Men now know their programme for the pool stage of Europe’s premier Volleyball competition. The tournament will get underway on September 12 in Montpellier, France and Ljubljana, Slovenia with the first set of matches in Pool A and C, respectively. The competition in Pool B and D, which take place in Belgium and the Netherlands, will commence one day later. EuroVolley 2019 Men will be reaching its climax on September 29 at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris – where the new European champions will emerge at the end of a truly history-making event!

Co-hosts France will play their first match against Romania, who make their first EuroVolley appearance since 1995, in a ‘pool of death’ including the likes of star-studded teams such as Italy and Bulgaria. France will play Bulgaria on September 16 and conclude their duties in Pool A with the ‘big match’ against Italy. Three matches will be taking place on the opening day of the tournament: apart from France vs. Romania, Italy take on Portugal and Bulgaria play a Balkan derby with Greece on September 12 in Montpellier. Two matches a day will be taking place for the remainder of the pool phase.
