Apeldoorn, the Netherlands to host women’s Olympic qualifier
News from the CEV

Paris, France, September 27, 2019. The Netherlands and more specifically the city of Apeldoorn will be playing host to the Olympic qualifier due to take place in early January (5-12) and whose eventual winners will secure their place in the women’s Volleyball competition of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The event will feature the top eight teams from the latest European ranking not yet qualified for Tokyo 2020 – after Italy, Russia and Serbia all secured their participation in next year’s Olympics earlier this summer.

The eight teams due to compete for the coveted ticket to Tokyo 2020 are (their current European ranking is in brackets): The Netherlands (host, 3), Turkey (4), Germany (6), Bulgaria (7), Poland (8), Belgium (9), Croatia (10) and Azerbaijan (11).

There will be two pools of four teams each playing a single round robin before crossed semi-finals follow next – and a ‘grand finale’ whose winner takes it all and will qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

A major Volleyball event will be taking place at the iconic Omnisport in Apeldoorn only a few months after the 8th Finals and quarterfinal EuroVolley 2019 Men matches. Apeldoorn is a popular feature on the international Volleyball map and played host – among other events – to one of four pools in the highly successful 2015 edition of EuroVolley Women, which the Netherlands co-hosted together with Belgium.
