NOVARA vs CONEGLIANO - Must know facts about the women’s Super Final
CEV Champions League Volley 2019 Super Finals

Luxembourg, May 13, 2019. The countdown to the ‘Volleyball party’ of the year has begun. It is only five days until the top teams in Europe contest the history-making CEV Champions League Volley 2019 Super Finals at Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, with 9,046 fans in attendance to account for a sell-out crowd. Imoco Volley CONEGLIANO and Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA will be the first ones to take to the court on Saturday, May 18, at 16:00 CEST for the women’s ‘grand finale’ whose eventual winners take home a € 400,000 purse.

It is almost redundant to recall the long rivalry between these two teams – which recently locked horns in the championship series of the Italian national league where Imoco Volley claimed three wins in a row, dropping only two sets along the way.

We have pulled together some interesting facts for fans to know ahead of the ‘big match’ where Europe’s most coveted Volleyball crown will be at stake:

•    This is the third all-Italian Champions League final on the women's side, after 2000/2001 and 2004/2005.
•    In 2004/2005, Volley BERGAMO defeated Asystel NOVARA 3-0. In 2000/2001, Volley MODENA defeated Caposud REGGIO CALABRIA 3-0.
