Competition formula[edit]

This section doesn't give any references. See below for one thing that I don't feel quite right.

Indoor volleyball[edit]

  • At the qualification round, each team plays one match against all other teams in its pool. Top four teams in each pool advance, the remaining two leave the competition.
  • At the second phase, usually called final round, teams play quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.
  • For the final round, matches are organized according to the results obtained in the qualification round. Let the top four teams in each pool be A1, A2, A3, A4; B1, B2, B3, B4. Quarterfinals would then be: A1xB4; A2xB3; A3xB2; A4xB1.


I don't think this is how teams are matched up at the knock-out stage in the Beijing Olympics. No problem with A1xB4 and A4xB1. But the other four teams (A2 B2 A3 B3) actaully drew a lot to decide who plays whom.

Can anyone please verify?
