Although it gained the organization of the 2022 FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship, Polish federation (PZPS) is not certain if it will be able to close the financial construction for holding the event.


In January, the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) announced that the Women's World Championships in 2022 will take place in Poland and the Netherlands. However, due to lack of money, the event might not take place in Poland, Gazeta Wyborcza reported.

The organization of the tournament costs 10 million euros and PZPS asked for government support. But as its President Jacek Kasprzyk stated, the situation could remain unclear even until the year when the tournament will take place as the country’s Ministry of Sport will only then decide on the financial contribution.

According to Przegląd Sportowy, the Dutch federation (Nevobo) has the idea of organizing matches of the pool stage at a football stadium, on which four Volleyball courts would be set up. On the other hand, the PZPS would like two pools to be played on their soil as well as one of the semi-finals or the bronze medal match. The PZPS determined which cities will host the World Champs matches: Gdańsk, Łódź, Katowice, Wrocław and Kraków.

Recall that male World Championship in 2022 will be held in Russia.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
