Arkas IZMIR vies for second consecutive final four appearance
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men
Izmir, Turkey, February 11, 2013. As they attempt to qualify for the final four of the CEV Volleyball Champions League for the second consecutive season, the players of Arkas IZMIR will host on Tuesday Poland’s Zaksa KEDZIERZYN-KOZLE, winner of the first Playoffs 6 fixture this past week. The home heroes count on the support of their fans to make it to the golden set and write another memorable chapter in the history of Turkey’s Volleyball.
“It will definitely be a good match” head coach Glenn Hoag says. “Two good teams will be playing their best to make it to the final four of this elitist competition. We all share that same goal and dream and so we need to focus on every single rally to accomplish this mission. The support of our fans will be an extra motivation and we hope to contribute a great Volleyball night. Last year we were able to make it to the final four turning into Turkey’s first club capable of doing so” the Canadian mentor continues. The “Atatürk” Volleyball Hall – whose renovation was completed in June last year – will be hosting 6,000 fans ready to enjoy a great show and to help their heroes make it to the last act of the competition scheduled for March 16-17 in Omsk, Russia.
