Team profile

Tunisia will be making their World League debut at the 2014 edition, and will be the sole African representatives in the competition. In 2013 they finished second at both the Mediterranean Games and African Championship, a defeat by Egypt denying them the gold medal in the latter competition.

The eight-time continental champions have participated in six Olympic Games, with a best finish of ninth-place in 1984 in Los Angeles. More recently, at London 2012 they lost all five matches, winning just one set. They have competed at every World Championship since 2002 but have recorded just three victories in matches, all three in their 2006 campaign. At a continental level, the team have won a medal at each African Championship they have competed in, apart from the 2009 edition when they finished fifth. In 2013 the next generation of Tunisian volleyball players posted a solid eighth-place finish at the 2013 World Under-23 Championship in Brazil.

Coach profile

Fethi Mkaouar is back for a second time as head coach of Tunisia’s men’s team. His first stint was from 1994 to 1996 and he guided them to an 11th-place finish at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games. He returned to the helm in 2010 and two years later steered the team to victory in the gold medal match at the 2012 Arab Championship in Bahrain and an 11th-place finish at the London Olympic Games. Under his guidance Tunisia also won a bronze medal at the 2011 African Championship in Morocco and took silver in the tournament two years later on home turf. Mkaouar previously coached Bahrain’s men’s team. Tunisia is one of the leading volleyball powers on the African continent.
