Gian Luca Pasini from La Gazzetta dello Sport revealed which country is the favorite to organize the European Men’s Volleyball Qualifying Tournament for the Tokyo Olympics.

 

After revealing that Turkey will most likely organize the European Women’s Qualifications, Pasini wrote in his blog that Germany holds pole position when it comes to hosting the Men’s tournament. Both are about to be played on January 2020 and will serve as the final chance to European teams who fail to reach the Olympics via FIVB International Qualifier. Only the first-placed side in the European Qualifications will go to Tokyo.

National federations all over the Old Continent are obliged to send the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) request for organizing qualifications not later than August 23. Then, the various continental confederations must communicate with the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) until August 31.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
