News from the National Federations

Utrecht, Netherlands, December 16, 2020. Despite the very challenging times we all find ourselves in, there is also hope on the horizon. While the Netherlands went into lockdown on Tuesday to try to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, Volleyball and sports fans are certainly looking forward to the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship, which will be taking place in the Netherlands and Poland.

It is the first time in Volleyball history that the Netherlands will be hosting the premier international competition – a ‘senior’ World Championship. On Monday, Manon Nummerdor-Flier, Bas van de Goor and Peter Blangé revealed the World Championship logo in the host cities of Arnhem, Apeldoorn and Rotterdam.  

The world is visiting Arnhem, Apeldoorn and Rotterdam

The largest Volleyball event ever held in the Netherlands will start on September 23, 2022 (subject to change) and will last for three weeks. The opening match of the World Championship, the bronze as well as the gold medal matches will all be taking place at the iconic GelreDome in Arnhem. Apeldoorn (Omnisport), Rotterdam (Ahoy) and another three cities still TBC will be hosting the second and third round.
Manon Nummerdor-Flier and Bas van de Goor are both tournament directors of the World Championship and unveiled the official logo in Arnhem and Apeldoorn, respectively. On the square in front of Rotterdam Ahoy, Peter Blangé (director of Rotterdam Topsport) pressed the launch button. In all three of the host cities, the logo appeared on large screens around the venues.

Global audience for World Championship

The logo of the World Championship recalls the jump of a volleyball player. It also shows that the World Championship for national teams is the highest attainable, the ultimate goal in one of the greatest global sports.

As many as 24 national teams will participate in the 2022 World Championship, playing 103 matches. The organisers expect more than 200,000 spectators to watch the matches live on site. More than 50 countries will broadcast a total of 1,600 hours of World Championship competition, with a potential audience of more than 1 billion viewers.

Serbia are the reigning world champions after taking gold in 2018 in Japan and they will try to defend their title in 2022. The Netherlands ended fourth at the last edition of the World Championship, thus accounting for their best result in history.
