IBB Polonia London – the premier men’s club side in English volleyball and current Super League champions – make their bow this evening in the CEV Champions League Volley 2020. A rare treat for sports fans this Round 1 encounter sees IBB Polonia pit themselves against Mladost Zagreb, the champions of Croatia, with the winner progressing to the next stages of the tournament.
It promises to be an occasion to savour in the iconic Copper Box Arena that hosted handball during the London 2012 Olympics. Mladost Zagreb are likely to challenge the hosts like never before, however IBB Polonia will be boosted by the presence of all-time volleyball legend, Giba, in their ranks. The Brazilian, who boasts Olympic gold and silver medals along with multiple world titles to his name, is one of the most popular players in the history of the sport and will add invaluable experience to IBB Polonia ranks.
