Women’s A1 Series, the countdown begins
Women’s A1 Series, calendar
We are just over two months away from the start of the exciting new Women’s Volleyball Championships season, kicking off the weekend of October 7-8. Starting tomorrow, Thursday, August 3, the countdown will officially begin with the publication of the Women’s A1 Series Calendar. The 14 teams in the top category will thus discover the first part of a path leading to the 79th Scudetto, with Conegliano called upon to defend the tricolor won in the heartbreaking Game 5 that closed last season from the assaults of the other thirteen pretenders.
The last approaching step as far as the A1 Series is concerned will then be the Championship Presentation, set for October 4, 2023. The Regular Season will end the weekend of March 23-24, with the Scudetto Playoffs starting in the last week of the same month. As for the cups, the Super Cup will still be the first title up for grabs, with the match between Conegliano and Milan scheduled for Saturday, October 28, while the Italian Cup Finals will be played between February 17 and 18, 2024.
Meanwhile, in the splendid setting of the Coni Hall of Honor in Rome, an exceptional parterre officially kicked off the 2023 European Championships, which will be held partly in Italy in the case of both the women’s and men’s events. The tournament, which will involve the best players from the Serie A leagues, will be played in particular in Monza, Florence, Turin and Verona. The opening match of the continental review between Italy and Romania will be played on August 15 in a unique setting: the Arena of Verona. The continental champions will then face Switzerland (Aug. 18) and Bulgaria (Aug. 19) at the Monza Arena, and finally they will close Group B at the PalaRuffini in Turin, where they will stage challenges against Bosnia and Herzegovina (Aug. 22) and Croatia (Aug. 23). Four Round of 16 and two Quarterfinals will be played at the Wanny Palace in Florence, Italy, while the Semifinals and Finals will be held in Brussels, Belgium.
