The 2010 FIVB World Championships begin: the Federations have received the entry forms

Russia (here with Lioubov Shaskova) is already qualified for the 2010 FIVB World Championship

Lausanne, 5 February 2008 – The process to compile the entry list for the 2010 FIVB World Championships has just started. The National Federations affiliated to the FIVB have been summoned to the qualification process, by receiving all the official documentations. The goal has already been set by Dr. Rubén Acosta, President of the FIVB: a record number of countries registered for the largest worldwide Volleyball event ever. Italy for the Men’s competition and Japan for the Women’s tournament will host the Championships in 2010, with 24 teams for each gender. That will be the last part of a huge event: the qualification process which will involve the entire planet.


1 May 2008 is the deadline for all the National Federations to register their teams for the 1st, 2nd 3rd and Playoff Round Tournaments. Each Federation has also received the conditions to organise the qualification tournaments. The competition dates and formula will be chosen by the participating teams within a group after the teams’ distribution, by 30 August 2008. This part of the qualification process will end by 31 August 2009.


4 teams are already qualified for the 2010 FIVB World Championships: Italy and Japan as organisers, the Russian Women’s team and Brazil’s Men’s team as World Champions.
