Champions League: Jastrzębski Węgiel wins, Mladost Zagreb withdraw, Kaštela temporarily suspended

Jastrzębski Węgiel and Stroitel Minsk cut the ribbon for the 2021 CEV Volleyball Champions League!
Jastrzębski Węgiel from Poland defeated Belarus’ Stroitel Minsk in straight sets (27:25, 26:24, 25:14) in the first match of the season.
The duel was valid for Day 1 of the qualification tournament – Pool C, hosted by Węgiel. Moroccan Mohamed Al Hachdadi scored 19 points for the winners, while Pavel Audochanka poured in 13 points for Minsk.

In Pool B, Croatia’s OK Ribola Kaštela didn’t provide COVID-19 test results so their match against Pool B hosts CSM Arcada Galați has been canceled and the Romanian side was awarded three points. In case they undergo testing today and get negative results, Kaštela will be able to play their upcoming matches.

Croatia’s Mladost Zagreb, who were to host Pool A tournament, have withdrawn from the competition due to several positive results for coronavirus and all their matches have been canceled.
The two other teams in this pool, Albania’s Erzeni Shijakut and Hungary’s Fino Kaposvár VC, will continue the competition.
