Canada to host Turkey in World League tune-ups


Canada, ranked 18th in the world, will kick-off the World League tournament at the Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City with two matches against the Netherlands from May 31 to June 1

Lausanne, Switzerland, April 25, 2013 - Canada will face Turkey in three matches next month in Gatineau and Kingston, Ontario, in an important tune-up for the World League men’s volleyball tournament which starts on May 31.

The matches are scheduled for May 15 and 16 at 7pm (local time) at the national training centre in Gatineau and Saturday May 18 at 4pm (local time) at Queen’s University in Kingston.  The Canadian men’s team is hosting the Turkish national squad for training and the matches from May 13-19.

“These matches will be a great preparation for the World League and an opportunity to fine-tune our team,” said Canada’s coach Glenn Hoag.  “While Turkey is not in the World League they are preparing for the European Championships.  They have a young talented team.”

Canada ranked 18th in the world, will kick-off the World League tournament at the Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City with two matches against the Netherlands on May 31-June 1.  The Canadians play their four other home matches at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario against Portugal June 7-8 and South Korea June 14-15.
