The 2010 FIVB Club World Championships are set to take place in Doha, Qatar from December 14-21
Bolivar, Argentina, November 1, 2010 – Argentina’s Drean Bolivar became the penultimate side to qualify for the 2010 FIVB Men’s Club World Championship on Sunday as they beat Brazilian side Cimed 3-2 (23-25, 25-19, 26-24, 19-25, 16-14) in the final of the Men’s Club South American Championship in front of their home fans.

They now join European champions Italy’s Trentino, European runners-up Russia’s Dynamo Moscow and a NORCECA team (which is yet to be decided) in Pool B of the tournament, set to take place in Doha, Qatar from December 14-21. Pool A will see European bronze medalists Poland’s PGE SKRA Belchatow, African champions Egypt’s Al-Ahly, Asian champions Iran’s Paykan and hosts Al-Arabi fight it out for a spot in the semifinals.

Led by Luciano De Cecco, voted MVP in the competition, and Lucas Ocampo, best attacker and server, the Argentine team narrowly edged the Brazilians.

Argentina’s UPCN completed the podium following a 3-1 (25-16, 25-17, 21-25, 25-16) win over Deportivo Cólon from Paraguay.

This will be the second edition of the FIVB Men's Club World Championship following its successful revival last year after a 17-year hiatus. The women's tournament is returning this year for the first time since 1994 and men's and women's matches will also alternate throughout the competition for the first time in its history.
