FIVB Says…

The FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Cup returns in 2011, marking the first step in the qualification proces for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The tournament will run from November 20 to December 4 and will see the top three teams qualify for the Games. They will join Great Britain as they have already secured a berth as the host country.

A total of 12 teams will take part in the contest, all of which will have qualified for the tournament through their respective continental competitions, either as the champions or as one of the four best runners-up from around the world. Additionally, two wildcards were selected with hosts Japan also set to compete.

Brazil have won the two last World Cups in 2003 and 2007 and are the second team in volleyball history to win back-to-back titles after the former Soviet Union, which won the trophy in 1977 and 1981, along with 1965 and 1991. The only other winners of the tournament have been East Germany in 1969, USA in 1985, Cuba in 1989 and Italy in 1995.
