FIVB - Volleyball World League
 


GROUP 3 FINALS
BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA - JUNE 3 TO 5

The Group 3 Finals of the FIVB Volleyball World League 2015 will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Following two weekends of Intercontinental Round matches, the winners from Pool F, G and H will join hosts Slovakia from July 3 to 5 in the Final.


Host Country:
Slovakia

A regular in European tournaments, Slovakia made their FIVB Volleyball World League debut in 2014, competing in Pool G. The side held their own against pool rivals China, Spain and Puerto Rico, with all three boasting more experience in the premier annual men’s volleyball tournament. However they narrowly missed out on a place in the Group 3 Final, winning three and losing three matches to finish second in the pool.

The team has seen much success on the continental stage in recent years, finishing the 2011 European Championship in fifth and winning the 2008 and 2011 European League.

 

Host City: Bratislava

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and, with a population of about 500,000, the country's largest city. Bratislava is in the south west of Slovakia, occupying both banks of the River Danube and the left bank of the River Morava. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two independent countries.

Known as Pressburg to German-speakers or Pozsony to Hungarian-speakers, Bratislava got its present name only 90 years ago. But the city has a long and proud history that dates back to pre-Roman times.

Bratislava's long history - as home to Celts, Romans, Germans, Hungarians, and of course Slovaks - means there is an impressive range of architecture, languages and cuisine.

 

Venue: Aegon Arena NTC

A multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility, the Aegon Arena NTC has hosted numerous concerts and major tennis tournaments.

Completed in September 2003, it can hold up to 4,000 spectators and has a retractable roof.
