A busy summer for Greek Volleyball
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men / Women

Athens, Greece, July 10, 2019. For Greek Volleyball, the challenges ahead in the summer of 2019 are great and the motivation to succeed is high. For the first time in 27 years, both the men’s and women’s national teams of Greece have qualified for the Final Round of EuroVolley. It was back in 1991 when the men’s team finished ninth in Berlin and the women claimed 8th place in Rome. The first-ever ‘common’ appearance of the two Greek national teams dates back to 1985 when the women finished 12th and the men were 7th at the event held in the Netherlands.

The women’s team had to go through eighteen years of drought to qualify again for #EuroVolleyW and last year they did it in emphatic style. In Pool C of the EuroVolley qualifiers, Greece recorded six victories in six matches without losing a single set, thus booking their ticket to the final phase. The Drawing of Lots held in Istanbul back in January put Greece in Pool A against hosts Turkey, reigning World and European champions Serbia, plus France, Bulgaria, and Finland.



As for the men’s national team, ten years away from the best countries of Europe were enough. Last time Greece was in the final phase of #EuroVolleyM was in 2009 in Izmir and their only common connection with today’s team is Mitar Tzourits. Back then, Greece’s superstar was making his career debut and still playing as a middle blocker before later switching to opposite hitter.

In the European qualifiers, Greece qualified as the top team of Pool G, losing only two sets along the way. The Drawing of Lots in Brussels assigned Greece to Pool A against host country France plus the national teams of Italy, Bulgaria, Portugal and Romania.
