EuroVolley our main goal this summer – Turkey’s rising star Cansu Özbay
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Women

Ankara, Turkey, July 15, 2019. The 22-year-old setter of Turkey, Cansu Özbay, was a member of the team that recently finished fourth at the Volleyball Nations League Finals in Nanjing, where she received the prize for the Best Setter of the competition.

Despite her young age, Cansu has quite some experience from international competitions, as she represented Turkey in youth and junior events earlier in her career. She was only 7 years old when Ankara hosted EuroVolley Women in 2003 – where Turkey claimed a historic silver medal, their best result in the continental showpiece event to this date.

“As you know, this year we will host the European Championship from 23 August to 8 September in the capital city of Turkey, Ankara. This is a very exciting tournament for us, one of our main goals for this summer,” she explains. “We will play in our hometown, in front of our crowd. I am sure that the audience in Ankara will not leave us alone and support us until the end, as they always did in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League matches. We are a young team but it is good to have some experienced players in the squad as well. We are working very hard to achieve our goals and succeed at EuroVolley.”

Turkey will compete with reigning World and European champions Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, France and Finland in Pool A.
