About GEN-I Volley:
Already well-known in its home country of Slovenia, GEN-I Volley Nova Gorica has a history in CEV competition having first made its bow in European Volleyball in the 1993/94 CEV Cup. Having been a regular feature in CEV tournaments throughout the 2000s competing as Hit Nova Gorica, the club had something of a hiatus before returning to the European battlefield in 2019 under the GEN-I Volley brand.
Having competed in the 2019 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup, Tilen Kozamernik’s side grace the CEV Volleyball Cup this year as they seek to secure a maiden European title and push on to an even higher level: competing in the CEV Champions League.
However, the club also has its sights set on honours closer to home. The Slovenian women’s top flight, the 1. DOL (Women), has been shared between Branik Maribor and Calcit Kamnik since 2010, and ending the stranglehold will be on the minds of Kozamernik’s players as they once again go on the hunt for titles to establish themselves as an emerging powerhouse in the Slovenian Volleyball scene.
