The FIVB Volleyball World League is synonymous with fantastic matches and top-class sport and entertainment. A new “ground-breaking” structure for the FIVB’s premier annual men’s volleyball event was announced in late 2013, and World League 2014 is expanding from 18 countries to 28 for the first time.
In 2013, the Canadian team won its pool, advancing to the playoffs and winning an exciting battle against the top-ranked Russian team, ultimately finishing fifth overall. The team’s performance resulted in a seven-place gain for Canada in the World Rankings – from 18th to 11th. Russia went on to win World League after beating Brazil 3-0 in the final match.
As in 2013, the matches will be nationally broadcast giving Canadian volleyball fans a chance to see their men’s team in action live at home and abroad.
This year, Canada will be the top-ranked team (11th) in Pool C – facing Belgium (37), Australia (14) and Finland (30).
The 2014 World League promises to showcase some very exciting matches!
