Posojilnica gets ready to cause major sensation while hosting Russian giant
2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League - Men
Bleiburg, Austria, December 1, 2013. Austria’s rookie Posojilnica AICH/DOB will welcome on Tuesday Russia’s standout Zenit KAZAN for their second home match in the prelims of the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Men. The players as well as their fans are much looking forward to hosting the winners of the 2008 and 2012 edition, especially after Posojilnica won one set in the previous match up in Tatarstan.
Though the Russian giant remains a mountain to climb, Posojilnica team captain Mihael Kosl says: “It was already a huge success for us to win one set as we played Zenit in Russia; however, considering that we have a very passionate and enthusiastic audience here in Klagenfurt, we believe that that we can cause a sensation on Tuesday night as we host them at the Sportpark. We will try to accomplish that mission impossible and display our best effort to challenge this great opponent.”
The home fans already flocked to the Sportpark some weeks ago as Posojilnica played their first home match hosting Italy’s Lube Banca Marche MACERATA.
The organizers expect to break all records with more than 2,000 fans in attendance for the match with Zenit and a possible miracle at home. “The city of Klagenfurt as well as all sports enthusiasts from the region of Carinthia shall not miss this opportunity to join a unique event and a great Volleyball night” says Sports Director Martin Micheu.
