Earlier in the day, Italy defeated Poland to claim bronze and their first EuroVolley podium finish since 2009. A total purse of €750,000 was distributed to the top four teams of the competition.
Turkey setter Naz Aydemir Akyol said: "It is very sad to lose a European Championship final like that, in front of our fans, after coming so close. We lost our lead in the tiebreak due to simple mistakes. It makes our hearts even more sink. If we had lost 3-0, maybe it would not have been that painful. I cannot say that we performed really well in the pool phase but we improved with each match. In the last week, I think we were better as a team. We wished to finish the tournament with the gold medal but it was not meant to be."
