After quite some time, Maribor, Slovenia has been chosen as the prestigious host city for the MEVZA Final 4 Women’s Volleyball Tournament in March 2024.

The teams qualified for the final 4 are HAOK MLADOST ZAGREB, SWIETELSKY BEKESCSABA, OK CALCIT KAMNIK, and OK NOVA BRANIK KBM MARIBOR.
“Another season of the MEVZA league is coming to an end. We can be satisfied with what we’ve seen, and we are glad to have welcomed some new clubs to the league, such as DINAMO ZAGREB. We hope that representatives from Slovakia will join us next season, and it would be nice if clubs from Hungary, such as VASASS, would also join, along with a few more clubs, considering that volleyball in Hungary is experiencing significant growth. I want to announce that MEVZA will organize a MEVZA Champions Tournament for all member associations before the start of the league next season. Year after year, we aim to implement ideas for improving volleyball in the region. I hope we will succeed in finalizing negotiations with the league’s main sponsor,” stated MEVZA Sports Director Frane Zanic.
