Lausanne, Switzerland, April 26, 2017 – Dutch volleyball fans will be wishing the next 50 days pass as swiftly as possible to the day when they arrive at volleyball nirvana also known as Sportcampus Zuiderpark in The Hague.

That weekend the Dutch men’s volleyball team will host Korea, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in Pool I2 of the FIVB Volleyball World League.
They start against Korea on Friday June 17, face Slovakia on June 18 and wrap up against the Czech Republic on June 19.
