Semifinal schedule decided for Group 3 Final Four in World League
Cuba will face China in the first semifinal at the Bursa Cengiz Gollu Volleyball Hall in Turkey at 2 p.m., local time, on June 28.
This will be followed by the second semifinal between Turkey and Slovakia at 5 p.m.
The 28 teams in this year’s World League were divided into three groups, with Group 3 consisting of Pools F and G, both with four teams each.
After two weekends of round-robin play earlier this month, Cuba won Pool F with a 5-1 record, while Turkey were second with a 4-2 record. Mexico (2-4) were third and Tunisia (1-5) fourth.
As hosts, Turkey were already qualified for the Final Four, meaning the second-placed team in Pool G would take the final spot.
China topped Pool G with a 5-1 record, followed by Slovakia (3-3), Spain (2-4) and Puerto Rico (2-4). Slovakia qualified as the best second-placed team.
The Final Four for Pools C, D and E will take place on the weekend of July 11-13, with the winner there advancing to the Final Six for Pools A and B from July 16 to 20.
