Slovenia are one of the four CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men organisers, and back on 6 June they revealed the official trophy in conjunction with a number of special actions held 99 days before the competition gets underway in Ljubljana.  The golden trophy, weighing 9.6 kilos and measuring 74 cm, is a truly handmade product, whose design reflects the modern, fresh and young CEV brand. It is gold-plated in a galvanic bath of 24 karats gold.

The trophy will be in the hands of this year’s European champions – who will emerge in Ankara and Paris for women and men, respectively, this coming September. I t is planned to use this very same trophy for future editions of the continental showpiece event for national teams in the future.
