This EuroVolley will be Belgium’s 16th participation in the continental showpiece event – and the fifth in a row. Belgium achieved their best result to date at the previous EuroVolley hosted by Poland. With a historic fourth place from the 2017 edition, the team is looking to maintain their high quality of playing and to confirm they belong to the top of European Volleyball.
“We are very excited to host and welcome other nations from across Europe to our stunning venues. EuroVolley is a major event and the whole of Belgium is proud to be a part of it. Pool B will be full of hard games so we can expect a lot of tension and excitement on court. The whole team is highly motivated to show our best level for our home fans.”

In other competitions, the ‘Red Dragons’ have finished tenth at the last World Championship, an unprecedented feat in that competition. During the European Golden League, head coach Brecht Van Kerckhove chose to give some new and young players a chance to taste what it feels to be playing for the Red Dragons.
With the Olympic Qualification Tournament in The Netherlands and EuroVolley coming up, the more experienced players are back again after enjoying some rest. Belgium currently sit in seventh and 12th place in the latest CEV and FIVB rankings, respectively.
