Champions League: It’s Official! SuperFinals 2023 in Turin2 min read
It’s official! CEV Champions League Volley 2023 Super Finals will be taking place in Turin, Italy on May 20!
The top four teams in Europe will be playing for the title at the iconic Pala Alpitour.
In Turin, Italy’s first capital city, many major international sporting events have taken place over the years, starting with the highly successful 2006 Winter Olympics.
The venue of this year’s Super Finals, Pala Alpitour, is indeed a legacy of those Olympics, when it did host the ice hockey competition, and more recently the state-of-the-art arena played host to the Final Six of the FIVB Men’s World Championship in 2018, with Poland claiming at the time their second straight title.
The CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals, a revolutionary event introduced for the first time by the CEV in 2019, return to Italy for a second time after the 2021 edition held in Verona under very difficult circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals do represent in the very best way the CEV’s wish and vision to deliver an experience that combines elite sport with high-level entertainment and fan engagement. We look forward to working with our Italian friends and with the local authorities to deliver the ultimate Volleyball experience for the benefits of those coming to Turin as well as for the many who will be following the event from afar,” said CEV President Aleksandar Boričić
“2023 is a very special year for us; as you know, we will be hosting both EuroVolley Men and Women across as many as nine cities, including Turin. The CEV Champions League Super Finals represent a key milestone in a wide programme of promotion and development of the sport. Last year was a truly unforgettable one for our Federation, however we wish for our audience to be able to witness a real show as often as possible. We are proud that CEV has asked us to co-organise such an exciting event,” added Giuseppe Manfredi, president of the Italian Volleyball Federation.
The winning teams will receive a substantial €500,000 each, making the total prize money at stake a remarkable €1.5 million.
