FIVB Women's 2022 World Championships


Recommended Posts

This year's 2 hosts are the Netherlands and Poland.   Drawing of the pools was conducted live in Lausanne a few hours ago.   (This is a sort of preview for the drawing of pools for the WC in Qatar 2022).  Still no word on where the FIVB Men's championships will take place after it was removed from M-F RUSSIA  (Boo!  Hiss!!)!!  The Russian WOmen's team here was replaced by CROATIA.  Lucky Croatia!!

POLAND, aside from hosting 2 million + Ukrainian refugees, is also pulling double duty as both Women's and Men's Co-Host of the quadrennial World Championships for Indoor Volleyball, stepping in for the men's tournament, with Slovenia, after it was taken away from Russia.  Kudos, Poland.  May you win at least one of them.

Hope that wont be the case on the men´s side, i dont want them to do a hat-trick over my country in finals! :D Jokes apart, at least they lucked out that they wound up fixing the format after the Russian expelling. Good luck for Ukraine on the champioship too.

But the Polish men's team is stronger than their women's so they have a better shot at winning the Men's title.  But you never know how these world Championships turn out.

Slovenia might have a shot at winning the Men's World Volleyball Championship later this year although this is their first time hosting the FIVB World Men's Volleyball Championship.

Not really.  Slovenia is ranked #8, right behind the US Men.  It would be very hard for a #8 ranked team to suddenly vault to the top of tournament when you have super-strong teams like France, Brazil, Poland, Italy and Argentina.  Very far-fetched for Slovenia to even reach the top 4.

It might be possible for the Slovenian team that they could have a strong results for the 2022 event on home soil.
