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

Espinho, situated on Portugal's north-western coast in the Aveiro province about 18 km south of the city of Porto, will host the Olympic qualifier at the Nave Municipal de Espinho.

The popular holiday town of Espinho is renowned for its long stretch of sun-kissed beaches and excellent selection of seafood restaurants.

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.
