The European Volleyball Federation (CEV) has anounced that Portimão has been chosen to host the European league finals next weekend, July 18 and 19.

This will be the second time that the city’s Arena is holding the prestigous event following Spain’s narrow 3-2 title game success there in 2007.

Slovakia are the defending champions in a competition which will be transmitted by cable channel Sport TV.

At the same time Albufeira’s Fisherman’s beach is the venue of the annual foot-volley World Challenge (July 17, 18 and19) and the Iberian Wind Surf circuit visits Lagos (July 18 and 19).
