Gert Vande Broek start met 19 Yellow Tigers aan voorbereiding op Nations League en EK

Coach Gert Vande Broek announced a large selection of nineteen players on Monday for the Nations League (May 25-June 25) and the European Championship (August 18-September 4).

Vande Broek starts the preparation with middle players Marlies Janssens, Nathalie Lemmens, Dominika Sobolska and Silke Van Avermaet, main attacker Kaja Grobelna, game distributors Charlotte Krenicky, Lara Nagels, Ilka Van de Vyver, Jutta Van de Vyver and Elise Van Sas, reception corner players Lise De Valkeneer, Helena Gilson, Jodie Guilliams, Britt Herbots, Manon Stragier and Celine Van Gestel and liberos Nel Demeyer, Amber Tant and Britt Rampelberg.

Last year, the Nations League was canceled due to the pandemic. This year the tournament will take place under strict conditions. For example, all participating matches will be played at a fixed location, in Rimini, Italy. All participants must undergo regular corona testing and must not leave their safe environment.

The Yellow Tigers are one of the “challenger teams”, as are Poland, Canada and the Dominican Republic. From May 25, they will also take on the main countries: Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey, the United States and South Korea. Due to the exceptional tournament format this season, no team will be relegated and the Yellow Tigers are therefore sure of participation in 2022. In 2018, the Tigers became thirteenth (out of sixteen) in the first edition of the Nations League, in 2019 they finished seventh but just next to a ticket for the final round. This year there is no final round with six, the top four immediately play semi-finals.

After the Volleyball Nations League, the team is preparing for the European Championship. Eurovolley 2021 is organized by four host countries: Serbia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania. 24 countries compete for the European title from August 18 to September 4. The draw will be held in the Serbian capital Belgrade on May 20.
