ECC committed to further raising profile of European Cups
News from the CEV

Luxembourg, March 2, 2018. A truly exciting week for Europe’s Volleyball family included the annual plenary meeting of the European Cups Commission (ECC) held in Luxembourg alongside the Drawing of Lots for the Playoffs of the 2018 CEV Volleyball Champions League.

It was an opportunity to review the 2018 European Cups season – with the members expressing their satisfaction with the current format, as it provides teams from across the whole of Europe with a truly unique opportunity to perform on the international stage and to take Volleyball to a growing audience.

The ECC are happy with the format in place for the CEV Volleyball Champions League, as it opens the door to all national champions to contest Europe’s elite club competition and at the same time, it accounts for the top teams in the world to deliver the ultimate Volleyball show.

Despite this, the ECC members agreed that there is room for improvement, especially in order to raise the level of the CEV Cup and Challenge Cup, and in the support provided to newcomers to the European stage, especially for those participating in the CEV Champions League for the first time.

With this in mind, the ECC hope to deliver a seminar focussed on the provision of information, best practices and other useful tools for those embarking on their first journey in the Champions League.

The Commission discussed remarks and ideas sent in by clubs in an effort to work closely together to improve the organisation and delivery of the European Cups and grow the sport at all levels.

The ECC have come up with a number of further proposals as well, which the CEV Board of Administration will study and discuss at their first plenary meeting later this year.
