Cuba are a must-see team

Manila, the Philippines, June 28, 2005 – Fans are clambering to find a ticket for the opening match in Manila where Olympic bronze medallists Cuba, one of the form teams in women’s Volleyball at present, will take on Thailand at 09:00 GMT ( 17:00 local time).

Cuba are in third place on the World Grand Prix table with three straight victories while Thailand have yet to win but local fans are desperate to watch high-class women’s Volleyball and they know the opening day’s play will provide it.

In a superb double header, world number four Italy take on the Netherlands, ranked 14th, in the second match at 11:00 GMT (19:00 local time), which is another pulsating fixture. Both sides have a 2-1 record and have made big impressions already in the tournament to date.
