Qualifier for inaugural men’s U17 EuroVolley coming up in Apulia
2016 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship - Men

Ostuni, Italy, July 26, 2016. The city of Ostuni in the region of Apulia is going to host from July 28-31 a qualification tournament for next year’s CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship – Men. The national teams of Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain will be vying for first place in order to secure their participation in next year’s inaugural championship. The teams will first complete a single round robin with two matches per day before the final matches follow on Sunday, July 31. All matches will be streamed live on the official website

The teams of Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain are travelling to Ostuni on July 27, while hosts Italy coached by Mario Barbiero have been training in Locorotondo, in the outskirts of Bari. The group of the so-called ‘Azzurrini’ consists of 14 players including two young guys from the region of Apulia, Ludovico Scardia and Piervito Disabato.

“This training period,” coach Barbiero said “has been a fruitful one. The place where we have been staying offers the right conditions for us to prepare for this tournament in the best way. The boys are very committed to working hard and I am happy with their attitude and approach. Concerning the upcoming tournament, we still need to learn more about our opponents. We don’t know so much about them yet. We have a team full of young promising talents who have been achieving outstanding results in many youth competitions. This is going to be a very good experience for all of them. We are focussed and determined to go for the best possible result.”
