Main reasons for moving the final tournament of the Nations League, which had its premiere in Lille from July 4-8 in Lille, France, to the United States in the next three years are the growth of volleyball’s popularity among young people in the country and large sports market that placed the USA at the top of the sports entertainment.

„I’m delighted that the USA will host one of our biggest and most talked about events. The USA is the biggest sports market in the world and presents significant commercial opportunities for our sport to grow and develop around the world. There are few countries which do sports presentation better than the USA, so I have no doubt they will be excellent partners for us,“ FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F° said.

„The United States is home to some of the world’s most successful sporting franchises. USA Volleyball’s partnership with the FIVB and the VNL will help us to put volleyball on par with these other sports, in terms of excitement, energy, professionalism, and presentation. The popularity of volleyball continues to grow in the USA – it’s the number one team participation sport for women and girls at high school and collegiate level, and the second-fastest growing boy’s high school sport, growing 15% over the last four years. Hosting the VNL Men’s Finals is a great privilege for USA Volleyball and I believe can be the tool for inspiring millions more young people to take part,” the USA Volleyball Federation CEO Jamie Davis stated.

The dates and locations for each VNL Finals from 2019 to 2021 will be revealed in the coming period.

The U.S. national team finished third in the inaugural edition of the Men’s Nations League, while their women’s team conquered the tournament.
