WP SportoweFakty revealed the names of participants and rules of the competition at the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship.

 

According to the Polish website WP SportoweFakty, the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship will have only four teams, none of them will come from their country!

Over the past few years, the number of teams that participated in the tournament stabilized at eight. But, this number will be cut to half for the next event. So, only four teams will play for the prestigious trophy this time: the South American champions Sada Cruzeiro (Brazil), the best team in Asia Shahrdari Varamin VC (Iran) and the 2019 CEV Champions League finalists Cucine Lube Civitanova (Italy) and Zenit Kazan (Russia). This means that even the last Club World Championship titleholders Itas Trentino will not take part, too!

The new rules will be different compared to previous editions. The first stage will be played in the round-robin format. Then, No.1 vs. No.4 and No.2 vs. No.3 will play the semi-finals. The tournament is scheduled at the same time as the Women’s (another novelty), on December 3-8.

The name of the country that will host the Club World Championship for Men is still unknown. Some sources say it will be Brazil, while WP SportoweFakty pointed out Ningbo, China, as the main candidate.

BRA M: So far so good for Cruzeiro – 2 wins in as many games

First things first, I know you will delete this coment, because this is a critic to WOV.. Sada doesn’t win big a long time... They lost Supercopa to Taubaté like they were juvenile team. Then they win first two games against low level teams and you write they are “ready to regain Superliga title”???? What kind of joke writer are you??? Reply

RUS W: Busato says he’ll call Kosheleva for national team preparations for Tokyo Olympics

The Russian team needs her, badly. She used to be one of the top attackers in the league. Even Zhu Ting paid her a huge compliment saying she contacts the ball at such heights thus making it hard to block her. Reply
