Even though it has fewer spectators when compared to football and basketball, there is still a substantial spectator group for volleyball in Turkey and both the league matches and the matches of the national team draw considerable attention. In fact, one of the leading sports channels in Turkey, NTV Spor, provides live coverage of men’s and women’s 1st League volleyball matches. You can follow the matches of the volleyball teams, which are sponsored by large companies, throughout the country. National volleyball championships in Turkey have been held every year since 1949, and especially the women’s national team have achieved international success. Turkey’s volleyball clubs won the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 CEV Champions League, the top official competition for women’s volleyball clubs of Europe.
