MEVZA Volleyball Under Age tournaments will follow the CEV and FIVB lead

Annually, MEVZA organizes Under Age events for boys and girls in 2 different age categories. These events are traditionally during the Christmas and New Year’s break and this year the U16/17 even counts as the 1st stage of qualifications for the European Championships, now scheduled for 2021.

Due to the fact, that all volleyball events were postponed until further notice, also many Under Age events will not take place in the originally foreseen period, they will be either postponed, some maybe even cancelled.  Therefore, the new dates and process must first be agreed between CEV and FIVB, before MEVZA can decide when to host its event.
