In 2019, the U SPORTS Men’s Volleyball Championship will return to a familiar site, as the Laval Rouge et Or play host to the tournament for the 12thtime, having last done so as recently as 2013. The Rouge et Or won their fourth Tantramar Trophy – on home court that season – the team’s first in nearly two decades.
"We are very pleased to be hosting the best men's volleyball teams in the country in 2019! At the last tournament we hosted at PEPS in 2013, we had a wonderful competition both on the fields and from the fans' response. This is an unique opportunity to showcase our institution across the country," said Laval sports and recreation director Christian Gagnon.
"The fact that U SPORTS has once again trusted us for the women's championship in 2018 and now the men's in 2019 demonstrates Laval University's established credibility for hosting major events with a dedicated and professional staff, a volleyball board ready to face challenges and enthusiastic coaches who are determined to present the best possible teams on the field."
The tournaments runs Mar. 15-17, 2019.
