Champions League IBB Polonia London
“It started as a joke and then became a dream.” Now, it is about to become history. IBB Polonia London will become the first English club team in history to play in the CEV Champions League this month.
The reigning English champions will play Croatian side Mladost Zagreb in round one, with a two-legged knockout tie this month. The first leg will be played in Zagreb on 22nd October, before CEV Champions League volleyball comes to the capital on Wednesday 30th October.
Tickets are now on sale for the home match at the Copper Box in London so fans can make sure they are there for the historic occasion.
While he admits it started as a joke, IBB Polonia London’s chairman Bartek Luszcz could not be prouder of his club blazing a trail in Europe.

It’s back to the 90’s
This year we are celebrating 50 years of SW volleyball (1969 to 2019), throughout the year we will be looking back at various parts of our history.
The latest set of the SWVA@50 photos have now been released, with “The 90’s” collect. A bit more interesting to our younger viewers as it’s spot your parents and coach time, not to mention the 90’s fashions.
Many thanks to Ron and others who have dug out their photo albums.
