European Volleyball Championship

The European Volleyball Championship is a CEV, the European volleyball federation. There are both men's and women's competitions.

The first European Championships were held in 1948 in Italy (men) and in 1949 in Czechoslovakia (women). The initial gap between championships was variable, but since 1975 they have been held every two years.
