News from the FIVB

Lausanne, Switzerland, February 21, 2018. The Chinese city of Nanjing has been selected as host for the first ever FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League Finals. From June 27 - July 1, all eyes will be on the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre as six top teams bid to become the inaugural Volleyball Nations League champion.

Nanjing is going to stage the FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League Finals for three consecutive years, following the open bidding process launched by the FIVB on August 31, 2017 via its official website.

Nanjing is a major Chinese city in the province of Jiangsu and home to many professional sports teams. The Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre is a 13,000-seater stadium located in the Nanjing Hexi New City, and was the main venue for the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics and the 2005 National Games of China, as well as the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix Finals in August 2017. The excitement and enthusiasm for hosting major Volleyball events has been consistently proven, and the Volleyball Nations League Finals will offer fans an unrivalled game day experience.

Having visited Nanjing in 2017, President Ary Graça said that the passion of the fans was a key factor in the FIVB’s decision.

“The Volleyball Nations League is committed to bringing the sport closer to the fans, and spectators in China never fail to create a fantastic atmosphere,” President Ary Graça said. “This brand new event will be a benchmark for sporting innovation and fan entertainment, and I am excited to witness this wonderful competition in action.”
