The Women's CEV Champions League, formerly known as CEV Champions Cup (from 1960 to 2000), is the top official competition for women's volleyball clubs of Europe and takes place every year. It is organized by the Confédération Européenne de Volleyball (CEV) and was created in 1960 as CEV Champions Cup.[1][2] On 13 November 2000, it was officially presented in Florence under a new format and renamed CEV Champions League.[3]

Formula[edit]

The competition has changed its format since the first fourteen teams took part at the inaugural edition in 1960–61.[1] Through the Champions Cup era, as the number of participating teams has changed over time, the competition moved from an only knockout tournament to include a round-robin format between the final four competitors to determine the champion.

Since the competition became the Champions League, all participants are divided into groups, and a double round-robin takes place within each group. The best teams advance to the playoffs and one team is selected to be the host of the "Final four" (receiving a bye from the playoffs and qualifying directly to the final four). The teams paired for the playoffs play a double-elimination until three teams remain, these three teams join the final four host to play the semifinal, 3rd place match and final. The final four takes place between March and April.
