From Finland to Israel, through Spain and Russia: the great European map

After winning the Champions League (the fifth CEV title in its history) last 5 May in Antalya (Turkey), the continental adventure of Trentino Volley men's team will continue in the CEV Cup next season. The fourth place in the final Play Off Scudetto 2024 table will not allow the Club of via Trener to defend the trophy, but will still allow it to take part in a European competition - the second one in terms of importance and visibility - that has already seen it play three Finals and triumph in one of them (in 2019 in Istanbul).
For the yellow-blue Club, the 2025 CEV Cup will be the seventeenth consecutive appearance in Europe, the eighteenth overall, also taking into account the double participation in the 2004/05 season (Top Team Cup and CEV Cup). Since the 2008/09 season (the one in which it made its debut in the Champions League, culminating with the triumph in Prague), Trentino Volley has never missed a European competition, playing twelve times in the Champions League and another four times in the CEV Cup.
Thanks to this extraordinary consistency, over time Trentino Volley has taken the name of its province to all latitudes, from Spain to Russia, from Turkey to Finland, and to most of the major European capitals. Vienna, Prague, Athens, Moscow, Ljubljana, Ankara, Belgrade, and Berlin are the main cities in which at least one official match has been played by the team, which, thanks to its many international successes, has always been highly appreciated by the local crowd; the most striking example is precisely in the two most recent international away matches: 6,487 spectators at the Max Schmeling Hall in Berlin, 8,500 at the Sports Hall in Antalya. Overall, in European Cups, Trentino Volley has played 92 away matches, winning 68 (73.9%); sixteen countries were visited.
