CEV‘s Sports Organising Commission (ESOC) has a tough job in European volleyball. It’s main function, according to the institution, is to propose organisational directives that governs the running of championships and tournaments within the jurisdiction of the CEV, prepare and coordinate the timetable of European tournaments, and to direct and supervise the technical groundwork for these competitions. These tasks are specially important when considering that most of Italy’s female clubs have recently sent the institution a message about pulling out of competitions if CEV’s schedule conflict with their domestic obligations.

With this, among other things in mind, the commission met in Luxembourg earlier this week for their annual plenary meeting. In discussion, it reviewed its plans for the 2018 national team season, which includes a renewed European League and qualification rounds for next year’s EuroVolley.

This season’s European League will feature a record-breaking number of national teams divided into gold and silver ties. The winner ad runner-ups of these competitoins will progress go FIVB’s Challenger Cup to fight for a spot at the 2019 edition of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League. As for the EuroVolley qualification, the organization talked about its logistics challenges on hosting the event in four countries simultaneously for the first time in its history. The organization also discussed possible changes to youth European competitions, in an attempt to encourages the involvement and participation from smaller countries.
