FIVB confirmed that Poland will host the 2016 FIVB Volleyball World League Finals. The five-day Finals featuring the top six teams in the 2016 edition of the competition will take place from July 13 to 17.
Twelve teams will play World League Group 1 next year, including the eight teams that took part in 2015 (Australia, Brazil, Iran, Italy, Poland, Russia, Serbia and USA), as well as 2015 World League winners France (who began the competition by finishing top of Group 2) and wild cards Argentina, Belgium and Bulgaria.
As in previous Olympic years, the 2016 FIVB Volleyball World League will be a shortened version of the competition, to accommodate teams taking part in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The Intercontinental Round will adopt the same format as the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix Intercontinental Round in 2016 with three different venues hosting matches over each of the three weeks of play in Group 1. The Finals will follow in week four.

With the Finals taking place in Poland and all the former winners of the competition back in action, the competition’s climax in 2016 is sure to provide an exciting spectacle in the run-up to the Rio Olympics. Over half a million fans attended the 103 match in the record-breaking FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship organised by Poland in 2014.
The FIVB Volleyball World League Finals in Poland will take place one week after the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix Finals hosted by Bangkok, Thailand from July 6-10. In 2015, the World League Finals were held at the Maracanazinho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
