The Romanian men’s Volleyball team has a great history. Back in 1963, Romania claimed their only continental title to this date when the event took place in Bucharest. Their last medal from the European Championship came in 1977, when Romania won bronze in Finland. However, Romania’s moment of real glory came at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, when they beat Poland 3-1 in the bronze medal match. Romania return to compete at EuroVolley for the first time in 25 years.
“For us the days until the start of the European Championship are the longest ones in our lives. After winning the European Silver League, our confidence has grown to the next level. EuroVolley will be our most important challenge...the Romanian team competing in France will be stronger than the one you saw in the Silver League. EuroVolley 2019 can be a fresh new start for Romania’s national team.”
