Team profile

Mexico are set for a significant milestone in their volleyball history in 2014 with their maiden participation in the World League, an occasion made all the more sweet by the country’s hosting of the opening round of Pool F in the capital Mexico City. A challenging group featuring Tunisia, Turkey and Cuba will make for an intriguing four-way match-up. Long in the shadow of regional powerhouses the United States and Cuba, and to a lesser extent Canada, the Mexicans will be looking to make this year’s tournament a springboard to further advancement.

Mexico’s international record stretches back to 1955 when they took the silver medal at the Pan American Games. They have subsequently won two bronze medals in the competition. They have also won three silvers and two bronzes at the NORCECA Championship. Their global experience extends to four appearances at the World Championship, capped by a high of 10th place in 1974.

Coach profile

During a decade of involvement in the national set-up, Sergio Hernandez has coached Mexico’s junior men’s and senior women’s teams as well as the senior men’s side. He won a silver medal as head coach of the men’s team at the 2013 Pan American Cup. Earlier that year Hernandez helped coach the junior men’s team in their campaign at the Under-19 World Championship in Mexico. Hernandez has his work cut out for him. The men’s last appearance at the World Championship was in 2010 when they came 13th. Their best finish at the Pan-Am Games came six decades ago when they took the silver medal in 1955. They have won silver three times – in 1969, 1975 and 1977 – at the NORCECA Championship.
