CEV qualifiers for U17 World Championships ready to go in Portugal
Tournaments for boys and girls will take place from June 6 to June 8, with 15 female and 13 male teams competing at Marginal Beach.
The main draw tournament of each gender will be played through a preliminary round of four round-robin pools of either four or three teams each and a final phase. The top three teams from each pool will advance to the final phase that will be played in a single elimination format with only the pool winners qualifying directly to the second elimination round.
Each of the six top placed teams in each gender will secure a spot for their country in the World Championship’s main draw, while the next five will earn spots in the qualification rounds in Acapulco.
The CEV Beach Volleyball U17 European Championships has acted as a springboard to world success in the past. Polish pair Piotr Kantor and Bartosz Losiak won the 2009 U18 title before they went on to win the U19, U21 and inaugural U23 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships.
