The CEV Women's Challenge Cup, formerly (from 1980 to 2007) known as CEV Women's Cup is the third 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 as CEV Women's Cup in 1980 to allow more clubs to participate in European competitions.[1] In 2007 it was renamed CEV Challenge Cup following a CEV decision to rename its second official competition (known as Top Teams Cup) to CEV Cup.[2]
