D Day for Argentina Volleyball
Aires, Argentina, June 3, 2005 - Friday’s return
for Argentina to the charismatic "Luna Park"
Stadium, where in 1982, the Argentina "82
Generation" won a bronze medal and where the
finals of the 2002 World Championship were
played, will stir plenty of memories and evoke a
wonderful sense of accomplishment for Argentine
It is true that the national men’s team played
in last year’s South American Championship, the
Olympic Games and the 2006 World Championships
and that both youth national teams qualified and
will play in the 2005 Youth World Championships,
but nothing has the same taste than playing at
home and especially in the premier men’s annual
tournament – the World League. Friday’s and
Sunday’s matches against Serbia & Montenegro and
next weekend’s encounter against Greece at the
same venue, will bring a great sense of
achievement for everyone involved in Argentina
Volleyball on their return to the premier elite
after two year’s absence.

To add to the local joy, the FIVB has
honoured Argentina by choosing Sunday's match as
the television "match of the week" meaning that
it will be broadcasted world wide.
The Luna Park stadium is ready, so everyone is
waiting for the opening whistle of the referee
to commence the show.
