NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship TicketsThe nation’s best men’s volleyball programs will face off in the 2020 NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship from May 7-9 on the campus of George Mason University, which is situated 20 miles west of Washington. This will mark the second time that the university has played host to this event. Fairfax, VA, is also the second easternmost city to ever host the NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship; Springfield, MA, was the location of the 1995 edition of this competition. Those looking to see men’s college volleyball at its highest level will be streaming through the gates to see which team will claim the national championship, many of them clad in their favorite team’s colors. A considerable number of them will likely have traveled from California to see this event live as seven of the 11 schools that have won this competition are based in the Golden State.

Where will the 2020 NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship be held?The EagleBank Arena, formerly named the Patriot Center, will play host to the 2020 NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship. This venue, which opened in 1985, is most famously known as the home facility for George Mason University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams.
Who prevailed the last time George Mason University hosted the NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship?The only other time that George Mason University hosted the NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship, 5,511 NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship ticket holders were enthralled by Southern California’s impressive 15-10, 12-15, 15-4, 15-6 win over Long Beach State in the 1990 title contest. That marked the Trojans’ fourth national championship and fourth in a 13-year span, but it’s also the most recent time that USC has lifted this trophy. Ball State defeated Rutgers-Newark, 15-12, 15-4, 7-15, 15-6 in the third-place match in 1990.
Who’s the defending champion heading into the 2020 NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship?Long Beach State enters the 2020 campaign looking for a three-peat of national championships. In 2019, the 49ers defeated Hawaii in a tight four-setter, 23-25, 25-22, 25-22, 25-23, to claim the title. The year before, LBSU had an even tighter battle on its hands as it outlasted UCLA, 25-19, 23-25, 20-25, 26-24, 15-12 to win its second national championship; its first trophy was claimed in 1991. If LBSU is successful, it’ll become the first team to three-peat at this event since UCLA ran off four straight titles from 1981-84. Interestingly, four different schools have repeated trophy wins over the past eight seasons; the other three were Ohio State (2016-17), Loyola Chicago (2014-15) and UC Irvine (2012-13).
What’s the format of the NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship?If the same format that was utilized in 2019 is used again in 2020, seven teams will be selected to the tournament field with two already qualified for the four-team NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship and the other five teams fighting for the two remaining slots. The entire competition is expected to be played under a single-elimination format.
Who is the best team in NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship history?Of course, there is no simple answer to the question of which team is the best NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship squad in history. However, only one has gone through a season undefeated and concluded that impressive campaign with a sweep in the national championship match. The 1982 UCLA Bruins wrapped up a 29-0 season with a 15-4, 15-9, 15-7 win over Penn State. That followed a 15-10, 15-12, 15-7 win for the Bruins over Ohio State in the semifinal round.
