The tournament which is hosted in the Netherlands and Poland this year will take place from 23rd September to 15th October.
On the second day of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship 2022, volleyball fans are set to witness several action-packed encounters. The tournament which is hosted in the Netherlands and Poland this year will take place from 23rd September to 15th October. The opening day (Friday) sees two matches taking place – Poland vs Croatia and the Netherlands vs Kenya. It is followed by five matches on Saturday. With a lot of eye-catching games set to happen, volleyball lovers are surely in for a treat.
One of the notable matches to take place on Saturday will be between Belgium and Puerto Rico in Pool A. On their day, both teams can be a real handful for any opponent. However, Belgium had a disappointing Women’s Nations League earlier this year when they finished second from the bottom (15th spot). Hence, the upcoming tournament provides a good opportunity for them to go deep in the competition. On the other hand, Puerto Rico can be a real challenge to any team. In the 2021 NORCECA Championship final, Puerto Rico lost the final to the Dominican Republic.
The 24-team tournament will run from September 23 through October 15. The teams are split up into four groups of six teams each, and they compete in a round-robin format. Each pool’s top four teams advance to the second round and the 16 teams are divided into two pools of eight nations. The countries coming from the same first-round pool only play against opponents from a different first-round pool. Each pool’s top four teams compete in a quarterfinal round, with the winners moving on to the semifinals. The World Championship trophy will be up for grabs for the last-four victorious teams, while the third-place match pits the losers against each other.
