The last day at the FIVB World Cup 2015 will be super exciting. Three teams will be fighting for two Olympic tickets…




Poland 10-0 (29 points, 30:8 set ratio), USA 9-1 (27 points, 28-5 set ratio), Italy 9-1 (26 points, 27:7 set ratio)… That is the current order on the standings at FIVB World Cup 2015, but there is still one more day of volleyball in Japan.

The rules are clear. Two best placed teams at the end of the tournament will qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016. All the others will have to look for their Olympic tickets somewhere else. There are only three remaining candidates for those top two spots – Poland, USA and Italy!

The opening game of the Day 11 might actually decide everything. Because, it will be a direct clash between Poland and Italy! White and reds need at least two sets to secure place at the Olympics, while on the other side Italy need a 3-0 or 3-1 win to pass Poland on the standings. Also it is important to mention that if Poland defeats Italy by any result then everything will be over and Poland and USA will secure top two spots!

Meanwhile, USA has a very clear situation. If Americans defeat Argentina in the last game, they will definitely secure the Olympic ticket, regardless of the outcome of the game between Poland and Italy. 

It will definitely be very exciting in Japan tomorrow. Stay with WorldofVolley and follow Day 11 at the FIVB World Cup 2015.
