The 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship will be held in Poland from 30 August to 21 September 2014.

Information[edit]

On 8 September 2008 the FIVB announced it has agreed a partnership deal for Poland to host the FIVB Men’s World Championship in 2014. “This will be the biggest and most beautiful sports event in the world, not only in volleyball but throughout the whole sports family,” said FIVB Honorary Life President Dr. Rubén Acosta. “Poland – I’m sure about it – will make this championship very special.”

Dr. Acosta and FIVB President Mr. Wei Jizhong agreed the deal in Warsaw last Thursday following negotiations with Polish Minister of Sport Mr. Miroslaw Drzewiecki, Mr. Miroslaw Blaszczyk, President of the Board of Administration of Polsat Television, Polsat Television Sports Department Director Mr. Marian Kmita and Polish Volleyball Federation President Mr. Miroslaw Przedpelski.

It will be the first time Poland has hosted an FIVB World Championship. The Polish Volleyball Union said matches will be played in Kraków, Gdańsk, Wrocław, Katowice, Łódź and Bydgoszcz.

Volleyball in Poland has enjoyed a huge surge in popularity over the last few years. The Polish Men’s team finished runners-up at the 2006 FIVB World Championships in Japan and a year later Katowice hosted one of the best-ever FIVB World League Final Rounds, with spectators filling out Spodek night after night.

“I am convinced that the 2014 Men’s Senior World Championship will be a gorgeous tournament with perfect organisation and great Polish fans,” said FIVB President Wei. “We were all charmed by them during the 2007 World League Finals and I’m sure the atmosphere will be even more spectacular.” Dr. Acosta said that the Preliminary Rounds for the 2014 World Championships will begin in 2012 with more than 215 National Federations set to take part, making the Polish Championships potentially the biggest sporting event in history in terms of competing countries.

Qualification[edit]

The regional qualification stage determined the 24 teams that would compete in the championship competition. Hosts Poland were granted automatic qualification. Regional governing bodies were allocated the remaining 23 spots. Africa was granted three, Asia and Oceania four, Europe eight, North, Central America and Caribbean five, and South America three places.

Pools composition[edit]

Teams were seeded in the first three positions of each pool following the Serpentine system according to their FIVB World Ranking as of 7 October 2013.[1] FIVB reserved the right to seed the hosts as head of Pool A regardless of the World Ranking. All teams not seeded were drawn to take other available positions in the remaining lines, following the World Ranking.[2] The drawing was held in Warsaw, Poland on 27 January 2014. Because qualification were in progress on 27 January 2014, the best world rankings of CAVB (13, 15 and 19) and NORCECA (4, 7, 11, 20 and 22) were used when the draw was made.[3] Ranking shown in brackets except Hosts which rank 5th.
