The Playoff 12 has been determined for the Men’s Champions League following the conclusion of round 4 play.

Each team that advanced to the fourth round of the competition played in 6 matches that would determine their fate in the tournament. The top two teams from each pool advanced automatically to the next round while the top-two third-place finishers also move on – Chaumont VB 52 and Berlin Recycling Volleys.

The teams that move on are:

  • Sir Safet Conad Perugia
  • VfB Friedrichshafen
  • Lokomotiv Novosibirsk
  • Zenit Kazan
  • Zaksa Kedzierzyn-Kozle
  • Cucine Lube Civitanova
  • Halkbank Ankara
  • PGE Skra Belchatow
  • Jastrzebski Wegiel
  • Diatec Trentino
  • Chaumont VB 52 Haute Marne
  • Berlin Recycling Volleys

Three of the five pools had a team that went undefeated in pool play – Sir Safety, Friedrichshafen and Zenit Kazan – while the remaining two top-place pool finishers ended with 5-1 records – Lokomotiv and Zaksa.

The drawing of lots for the Playoff 12 will take place on March 2 at 12 PM CET. This will determine who plays who in the next round, with the home matches taking place from March 13-15 and the away matches from March 20-22.

The men’s teams will be drawn from two different cups already split prior to the drawing of lots:

1st Cup: VfB Friedrichshafen, Sir Safety Conad Perugia, Zaksa Kedzierzyn-Kozle, Lokomotiv Novosibirsk, Cucine Lube Civitanova, Diatec Trentino

2nd Cup: Halkbank Ankara, PGE Skra Belchatow, Jastrzebski Wegiel, Chaumont VB 2 Haute Marne, Berlin Recycling Volleys, Noliko Maaseik
