Poland will play against Slovenia at the beginning of the qualifying tournament for the Olympic Games. The match will be the first of seven that await Stefano Lavarini’s players in Łódź. Where and when can this match be watched?
The Polish national team begins its competition in the qualifying tournament for the Olympic Games. After the bronze medal in the Nations League and the quarterfinals of the European Championships, it’s time for perhaps the most important event of the year. It will largely decide who will go to the tournament in Paris.

Eight teams came to Łódź, of which only two will leave satisfied with their qualifications for the Olympic tournament. Although theoretically the Poles were drawn from the third basket, they still have a good chance of advancing. But you have to beat a lot of teams. The first of them is Slovenia, which the White and Reds faced at EuroVolley 2023.
In the match played in Ghent, Stefano Lavarini’s players did not give their opponents a chance. They won 3-0, winning in sets to 19, 14 and 19. The rivals’ team has undergone a thorough reconstruction, which is visible in the very young squad. Since last year, the national team coach has been Marco Bonitta, who held the same position in the Polish national team in 2007-2008.
The Poles will start the match with their strongest squad. Martyna Czyrniańska returns after an injury that deprived her of the chance to play at the European Championships. The Eczacibasi Istanbul player replaced Weronika Szlagowska. Apart from the 19-year-old, we can count on Magdalena Stysiak, one of the best attackers, in the offensive.
