The Vestcup History
Vestcup is a Norwegian Volleyball tournament organised by the Vestcup committee. The Vestcup committee is a group within the KFUM Stavanger Volleyball (KFUM = YMCA) .
The tournament was originally named "Åpningsturneringen" - the first tournament every season in Rogaland. In 1987 KFUM Stavanger took the responsibility for the tournament and renamed it to Vestcup. Vestcup has always been a tournament for all teams at all levels, and Vestcup is thereby an important gathering for volleyball in Norway.
We have had teams from Romania, Netherland, China, Denmark and Sweden in Vestcup.
