Just like in any sports, Volleyball players compete for their national teams as an act of honor. But, of course, they expect a compensation fee for playing because it is guaranteed to them by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) who distributes money to national federations. Players will now have an extra motive to play in the FIVB World Cup...


As Gian Luca Pasini informed in his blog, the organizer of the upcoming World Cup, both in male and female competition, and that is Japan, will offer generous prize money to players. The total prize money is the same as in the FIVB Nations League, 2,110,000 US Dollars, and will be equally divided between both genders. But unlike the VNL, it will be mostly divided among players and not among national federations.

The FIVB has decided that federation will get rewards only as reimbursement of expenses, while the majority of the money is left to the athletes. But, the money will be spread among players via federations. The distribution of the prize money will be made as follows:

  • 1st place – $600,000 for players; $30,000 for federation
  • 2nd place – $300,000 for players; $15,000 for federation
  • 3rd place – $100,000 for players; $10,000 for federation

The Women’s World Cup will be played on September 14-29, while the Men’s will be played on October 1-15. The top 12 teams according to the FIVB World Rankings from January 1, 2019 (the top two of each continental federation) have qualified for the tournament (except Japan who qualified as hosts and Poland who qualified as the 2018 world champion). The USA defend the male title, while China defend the female title.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
