Verona to host the CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals 2021!2 min read
Verona will be the host of the CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals scheduled to take place on 1st May, at one of the most important structures in the city, the AGSM Forum Arena. An elite international Volleyball event returns to this city after the very same arena played host to matches of both the 2010 and 2014 World Championships.
“At this very special moment in time, our Volleyball family could not ask for a better partner than the Italian Volleyball Federation to deliver the second edition of our unique Super Finals,” says CEV President Aleksandar Boričić. “I wish to thank FIPAV and their leadership as well as the local Organising Committee in the city of Verona for their readiness to deliver such a major event even in such difficult and challenging times. Working together as one team I am sure that we will be able to put on a show and we will be doing so with the help of the very best Volleyball players in the world, treating fans from across the globe to Volleyball of the finest level.”
Federico Sboarina, Mayor of Verona: “I would like to thank the CEV, the Italian Volleyball Federation (FIPAV) and especially the FIPAV Committee of Verona for providing our city with the opportunity to organise the CEV Champions League Volley 2021 Super Finals for both men and women. It is obviously an honour and I am confident that the local Organising Committee will be able to deliver this major event in the best possible way. Our city will be ready to host and welcome the top teams that will come to Verona to play for the most coveted trophy in European Volleyball.”
In an effort to support all clubs involved in these tough times, the CEV Board of Administration increased the overall prize money to a record-breaking € 4.8 million for the 2021 edition of the elite CEV Champions League Volley.
The prize-money at stake for the winners of this year’s Champions League Super Finals will represent yet another all-time record for the competition, with each winner set to take home a € 500,000 check. The runners-up of the Super Finals will receive € 250,000, with those making it to the semis but failing to progress further securing € 125,000 each.
