English champs to take on Italian giants in Champions League
English champions IBB Polonia London are in for a huge test on their second campaign in Europe’s Volleyball Champions League as they come up against former winners Trentino in their opening match.
IBB Polonia have been drawn in Pool F of Round 1, meaning they will face the Italian giants Trentino as well as Serbian champions OK Vojvodina.
The matches will be played in Trento, Italy, at the end of September. The Londoners will come up against Trentino on 29th September and OK Vojvodina on 30th September.
In total, 18 teams have been split into six different pools for Round 1 of the Champions League, which is organised by the CEV. The winner of each pool then proceeds to Round 2.
To boost their ranks and build on their Champions League debut in 2019, the club are looking to make some superstar signings. The first to be announced is Marcus Nilsson, a 37-year-old opposite who has a wealth of experience at the top level of professional volleyball. He picked up a Champions League medal in 2013 with Russian side Lokomotiv Novosibirsk and was picked as the competition’s MVP in 2009 and 2013.
