The specially selected ‘Match of the Week’, an initiative launched in 2008, is available to the World League’s host broadcasters as well as other TV channels with the aim of spreading volleyball into regions where the sport has the potential to grow. 

The FIVB Volleyball World League is set to begin on May 23 with the Finals taking place on July 20.

The excitement and action of the World League is set to get more intense this year as the 25th edition of the FIVB World League sees the competition increase from 18 to 28 teams split into seven pools of four teams each.

It is the first time the FIVB’s premiere event will feature such a large number of teams having had 16 teams from 2001-2003 and 2006-2012. The World League featured eight teams in its inaugural year in 1990, 10 in 1991, 12 from 1992-2000 and 2004-05 and then 18 in the 2013 edition.
