WCH 2018 W: Pools composition confirmed at Drawing of Lots in Tokyo

Source: cev.lu

1325 0

Pools composition (four pools of six teams each, single round-robin system) for the 2018 FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship in Japan has been determined at the Drawing of Lots in Japan’s capital Tokyo.

 

At the first glance, it seems that only Pool A has one team as the favorite while the other three pools have at least two sides that will fight for the top spot. For instance, the defending champions USA will face fierce rivals Russia, two rising Asian sides Korea and Thailand, the 2017 CEV European Championship semifinalists Azerbaijan and Trinidad and Tobago from Africa.

Pools composition for the First Round of the 2018 FIVB Women’s World Championship:

Pool A

Japan, The Netherlands, Argentina, Germany, Cameroon, Mexico

Pool B

China, Italy, Turkey, Bulgaria, Canada, Cuba

Pool C

USA, Russia, Korea, Thailand, Azerbaijan, Trinidad and Tobago

Pool D

Serbia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Kazakhstan, Kenya

The hosts Japan and Argentina will open the tournament in Yokohama, on September 29. Beside Yokohama, five more cities will put their gymnasiums at the disposal of the best 24 teams in the world.

As for the format of the tournament, the top four teams from each First Round pool will advance to the Second Round. These 16 teams will be split into two pools of eight (four best teams from Pool A and Pool D into one pool, and four best teams from Pool C and Pool B into the other one). Then, the top three teams from each of the two Second Round pools will go to the Third Round (two pools of three). The top two teams in each pool will advance to the semifinals. The tournament will end on October 20.

Recall the pools composition for the Men's tournament.

Top 10 headshot spikes in women's volleyball (VIDEO)

To produce and celebrate Headshot compilations is just plain stupid! Do you know that volleyball has lost talented players who had to end their career because of multiple concussions (caused also from headshots) and their severe long-term effects? People who amuse themselves watching this have no clue and not an inch of empathy! Reply

European League Pools determined, prize money increased

Re: @Axe The decision who will be a member of World League should be based on quality and results, not a subjective invitation for reasons that have nothing to do with sports. Unfortunately, FIVB completely lost compass with their desire to experiment without any reason.
