The B1G is launching a new media days opportunity alongside the Big Ten Network in a first-of-its-kind move.

On Friday, it was announced that the B1G will host its first-ever Volleyball Media Days. The event is set for Aug. 1-2 at the BTN studios in Chicago.

According to BTN’s Emily Ehman and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), this is the first Volleyball Media Days across all NCAA conferences. All 14 B1G head coaches will attend the event, along with 1-2 players from each program.

According to Ehman, it provides a key opportunity for volleyball in the conference to be covered in the same way as football and basketball in terms of preseason content.
