Greek men’s national team start preparing for busy summer
News from the National Federations

Athens, Greece, May 12, 2016. Greece’s men’s national Volleyball team has gathered in Athens to start preparing for their campaign in Group 3 of the 2016 FIVB Volleyball World League.

Head coach Sotirios Drikos and assistant coaches Kostas Delikostas and Nikos Zalmas had already confirmed their list of 21 players last week, but for the time being they have started working with 11 of them.

The coaching staff plan on having 17 players over the next few days, with the addition of team captain Mitar Tzourits, setter Dmytro Filippov, the two experienced middle blockers Georgios Petreas and Nikolaos Smaragdis plus the two young opposites Georgios Tzioumakas and Anastasios-Stamatios Aspiotis.

Greece are facing another busy summer, as they will also take part in the qualification round for the 2017 CEV Volleyball European Championship.

“Obviously, for the image of our sport, it is crucial for us to qualify to the finals of the 2017 European Championship, because our last participation was back in 2009,” said Drikos.

“So we can say that it is a priority for our team, but that doesn’t mean that we are not interested in the World League. Especially with the new format of the competition we have to fight for our qualification to the Final Four, otherwise we will face the risk of being relegated to the European League,” he added.

“The last two years we played in the final of the European League, we returned to the World League and for sure we grew as a team. Our players are now much more mature and experienced, many of them are playing abroad in very competitive national leagues and if we don’t face serious health problems, I strongly believe that we can achieve our goals.”
