Reigning U16 European champions to take to the court in Bassano del Grappa
2018 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship - Women

Bassano del Grappa, Italy, January 2, 2018. Everything is ready for the #EuroVolleyU17W qualifier due to take place in Bassano del Grappa. The four participating teams – Italy, Croatia, Poland and Austria – are currently on their way to the Venetian city where they will be fighting for a ticket to the Final Round scheduled for April 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Mayor of Bassano del Grappa, the European City of Sport 2018, Riccardo Poletto warmly welcomes all teams and officials. “I am proud and delighted that such an important European competition will be taking place in our city, right at the beginning of 2018, with Bassano del Grappa holding the title of “European City of Sport 2018.” As a former Volleyball player, I feel a great sense of satisfaction, because with this event we have the possibility to raise the profile of Volleyball to the next level.”  

Adriano Bilato, Vice President of the Italian Volleyball Federation: “This tournament is very important because it represents a first step towards the European Championship but also for the next edition of the U18 World Championship, since participants from Europe and other Confederations will result from the respective continental championships. I would like to recall that Italy has won the last two editions of the World Championship in this age group and that many of the players competing in Bassano are the reigning U16 European champions. As a Venetian I remember with much emotion the 2009 edition of the U19 Boys’ World Championship held in Bassano and I am also particularly pleased to be able to highlight the warm welcome that the city has deserved to us for this tournament.”
