Slovenia ready for their first-ever home EuroVolley
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men

Ljubljana, Slovenia, September 9, 2019. Slovenia will soon be the host of a ‘senior’ CEV Volleyball European Championship for the first time in history. With only two days to go, Slovenia’s Volleyball heroes already feel the excitement, while sports fans from all around the country are determined to support their “silver boys” in Stožice Arena.

The organisers have sold more than 20,000 tickets for the Pool C clashes featuring Russia, Slovenia, Finland, Turkey, Belarus and North Macedonia, and the whole of Slovenia has started breathing with Volleyball in the last days before the championship. “I expect a real Volleyball spectacle in Ljubljana and I expect Slovenia will stand for their boys, who in the past 10 years or so never declined to play for their country, for their national team. These players deserve all this support. I am sure we will deliver a successful championship, we are ready,” the President of the Volleyball Federation of Slovenia Metod Ropret said to a record number of journalists, gathered at the press conference held in Stožice Arena.

Slovenia’s setter Dejan Vinčić is confident that we will witness the so far best organised European Championship: “The Volleyball fever is rising, and we are already feeling it, as well as the positive vibrations. We never had the opportunity to face the best European teams in front of a home crowd. Our federation is doing a phenomenal work with the promotion of Volleyball and everything that is happening around us. I am sure we will host the best ever EuroVolley.”
