Kenya, who won the silver medal in the 2021 African Championship, will back themselves to do well in the competition.
It is not long away from the commencement of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship 2022, as volleyball fans can brace themselves for a thrilling ride. The tournament will kick-start on Friday, with both co-host nations in action on the opening day. The first match will see Poland taking on Croatia and it will be followed by the Netherlands playing Kenya. It is just the start of an action-packed couple of weeks, as the competition which is hosted in the Netherlands and Poland this year will take place from 23rd September to 15th October.
In this year’s Volleyball Nations League, the Netherlands could only manage an 11th-place finish. They had won only four games throughout the tournament and managed just 14 points. Hence, the European country will be eager to put up a better showing in the World Championship but their upcoming opponents will be no pushover. Kenya, who won the silver medal in the 2021 African Championship, will back themselves to do well in the competition. Despite the Pool A clash on Friday will be taking place in the Netherlands, the African side will be quietly confident of starting the tournament on a positive note.

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.
