The 2017 Del Monte Italian Super Cup’s schedule has been announced by the Italian Volleyball Federation. The competition will be held in Palasport Eurosuole Forum from October 7-8.
The team’s chosen for the event were selected based upon their finishes at certain events last season. The finalists of the Scudetto and Italian Cup were chosen for this year’s event. Therefore, the semifinal/first round matches will be played by the winner of the Scudetto and the loser of the Italian cup while the second will be the winner of the Italian Cup and the “runner-up” in the league. Though this new regulation is in place, both Cucine Lube Civitanova and Diatec Trentino fit the bill for the qualifications. This left the federation to select the next two teams from the regular season – Sir Safety Conad Perugia and Azimut Modena.
Below is the schedule:
Saturday, October 7
- 16:00 CET Cucine Lube Civitanova vs. Azimut Modena
- 19:00 CET Diatec Trentino vs. Sir Safety Conad Perugia
Sunday, October 8
- 15:00 CET – bronze medal match
- 18:00 CET – Finals
Last year, Azimut Modena took the title over Sir Safety Conad Perugia in a five-set battle (25-22, 19-25, 25-22, 24-26, 17-15) with Nemanja Petric being named the tournament MVP for Modena.
