CEV announce qualification criteria for first-ever Snow Volleyball European Championships
2018 CEV Snow Volleyball European Championships

Luxembourg, October 26, 2017. As many as 24 men’s and 24 women’s teams will compete from March 23 to 25 at the first-ever Snow Volleyball European Championships in Wagrain-Kleinarl and Flachau, Austria. They will be trying to make history by taking the highly coveted continental crown as well as a share of the prize money – € 10,000 per gender – at stake up there in the Austrian Alps.

The CEV have now confirmed the qualification criteria, which will determine the 48 teams taking to the snow in the real ‘birthplace’ of Snow Volleyball, Wagrain-Kleinarl and Flachau, and try to go down in history by becoming the first-ever European champions in the sport.

In order to grow the game, the CEV are putting an emphasis on the organisation of National championships – with their eventual winners securing the right to compete in Austria for the continental crown. Any such events will have to take place between November 15, 2017 and March 5, 2018, feature at least two teams and follow the CEV Snow Volleyball Rules.

Apart from national champions, the eventual winners of events on schedule for the 2018 edition of the CEV Snow Volleyball European Tour (dates and venues to follow in due course) will qualify for the European Championships as well. If any such teams are the national champions in their respective countries, the runners-up from the European Tour stops will take their spot.

The host country, Austria, have a secured contingent of three teams per gender – i.e. their 2018 national champions plus another two teams. With the only exception being Austria, there is a country quota of maximum three teams per National Federation.
