Federation Internationale de Volleyball Tickets

Federation Internationale de Volleyball Tickets

Where to Watch Federation Internationale de Volleyball Games

On the sand or on the indoor court, the Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) runs volleyball at the sport's highest levels. The FIVB is responsible for international Olympic qualifying and most major international tournaments.

Event

World ChampionshipsThe FIVB Men's and Women's World Championships feature the best national indoor volleyball teams from throughout the world. The competition takes place on a four-year cycle, two years before each Olympics. Following a series of qualifying tournaments, the top 24 teams in each gender meet at a single site to determine the world title holder.

World LeagueThe top men's national indoor volleyball teams also compete each year in the World League, providing a chance for audiences throughout the world to see the top players in action in a round-robin tournament. In the first round, teams compete in home-and-away matches. The top qualifiers, plus a predetermined host nation, meet for the league finals.

World Grand PrixThe top women's national indoor volleyball teams compete in this annual series. The first round features teams playing in pools against several opponents across a weekend at a single site. The top teams, after qualifying, play at one site for the Grand Prix finals.

World CupThe World Cup is held at a single site every four years. Both men's and women's indoor volleyball teams compete, with the top three teams for each earning automatic qualification for the next Olympics.

Beach Volleyball World ChampionshipsThe top duos in men's and women's beach volleyball compete in the world championships every two years. A site, determined by a rotating schedule, hosts the top 48 teams.

Beach Volleyball World Tour

FIVB oversees an annual series of international beach volleyball tournaments. Tournaments include both men's and women's teams in high level competition played throughout the world.

History

FIVB was founded with 14 national volleyball associations in 1947. Membership grew to more than 200 members by 2000. Thanks in part to organized lobbying efforts by FIVB members, court volleyball was added to the Olympic roster in 1964, followed by beach volleyball in 1996.

Trivia

The Soviet Union has won the most indoor Men's World Cups, with six titles. Among other nations, Brazil and Italy have won the Men's World Cup most often, with three titles each. The Soviet Union and Russia combined have claimed eight women's world cup titles; Japan is the runner-up with three wins. Italy has won eight World League titles.

Originally, volleyball was called throwball or handball, although the name was settled by the time FIVB was created.

Spectator Experience

Since FIVB oversees indoor and court volleyball, the organization offers a wide range of experiences for fans. Federation Internationale de Volleyball tickets are usually a hot commodity.

The highest level of indoor volleyball competitions take place in large arenas or university and club gyms with fairly large seating capacity. Because indoor volleyball action centers around the net, most arenas offer excellent sight lines from any angle. National team competitions tend to draw knowledgeable and enthusiastic fans. At neutral-site games, you will often see a mix of fans from different nations with unique chants, banners, and costumes to support their teams.

Beach volleyball often takes place outdoors. In most cases, temporary stands are constructed to hold spectators at an FIVB beach volleyball tournament. Sometimes, indoor arenas are used to host tournaments, with sand spread over the existing floor. Although beach volleyball draws a range of fans of all ages, it tends to attract younger people.
