Tours volleyball secures place in CEV European Cup final

The Tours Volley Ball presents itself with a new European final. In last night’s rematch semi-final, TVB defeated Poland’s Belchatow 3-1 (25-21, 25-20, 21-25, 25-20) in a Grenon room with 3,200 supporters. Despite Kevin Tillie’s sick absence, Tours have often impressed and know what to do after the Poles’ 2-1 draw. “A night like this is what we want to offer the public of Turin, Turin, our region“Club president Bruno Polpre explained.”We are a good European club and tonight we proved that again. It’s a collective work: there are great players, of course, but also communication with the public and all the institutions that support us.We are one, we are the dream team“.

TVB applauded with his public to celebrate the victory before continuing with the Circle of Honor, during which Dmytro Teryomenko held the flag of his country Ukraine. “This is a dream night.I’m having a hard time even finding my words, our lives are so intense“Passerby Gary Chauvin said, still surprised by the public’s enthusiasm.We will not lose the final. For sure, we have a great Monza team to play. We’ve played stronger before, but we don’t have to rest on our laurels.We have a lot of work and we want the room to be full like that because the public tonight is really the seventh man“.

Pierre Derouillon made the same analysis: “The public could have been crowned the man of the race. Everyone accomplished their feats tonight, time and time again, but it was the team that prevailed. The collective has never fallen, which is huge” Emphasize TVB’s receiving attackers“We had a great team this year. Now we all saw what we were capable of, we did great things. Don’t stop in the final. We have to give our all. I think everyone is ready. We can now play the final.

A night like this is what we want to offer the public of Turin, Turin, our region“- TVB President
