One of them is the 2015 CEV Volleyball European Championship- Women which will be hosted by the Netherlands and Belgium. 13 out of 16 teams are already known, while the rest 3 are to be decided in May 2015.
The participant teams will be divided in four pools as it follows (Belgium and the Netherlands were chosen by the organisers as top as a matter of hosting, plus Serbia and Russia):
