The allocation of teams for the Men's World Olympic Qualification Tournaments was decided after the drawing of lots in Tokyo on March 3.

Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine - Westphalia, boasts that it is Germany's "capital of sport," with 400 sporting clubs and a huge range of sporting venues situated in the city including the ISS Dome which will play host to the Olympic qualifying tournament.

In 2002, Düsseldorf got its first taste of top-class Volleyball when it hosted a World League tie between Germany and Russia, generating an enthusiastic response from the locals and thus making it an excellent location for the upcoming event.

Brazil, Russia, Bulgaria, Egypt, Serbia, USA and Venezuela have already booked their tickets to Beijing through the FIVB 2007 World Cup or Continental Qualification Tournaments, while China have qualified as the host country.
