The host national team will face the light blue – white team coached by Javier Weber on Friday and Saturday, June 7th & 8th at 21.00.
With some new faces but also with experienced players of previous editions of the FIVB World League, the national team will play its first official matches of a very demanding season after the successful friendly tour played against Cuba (three victories out of three matches) in Almirante Brown, Argentina, last weekend.

Facundo Conte is recovering from surgery of his right shoulder and will be absent at the first part of the international season.
