As the Olympic berth is at stake both teams will look to hunt for a team after having a nervy start to the campaign
What is the format of the Paris Olympics Volleyball Qualifier 2023 Men?
The 24 teams are placed in three pools of eight, for a round-robin tournament. Subsequently, in each group, every team will face each other once. After this, the top two ranked teams will obtain a quota for Paris 2024. Rio de Janeiro in Brazil will host all games of Pool A. While, while the teams in Pool B will play in Tokyo, Japan. On the other hand, nations in Pool C are going to play in Xi’an, People’s Republic of China.
The Olympic Qualification Tournaments will include the 24 best-placed non-qualified teams except Russia who is ineligible to compete in the OQTs due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. The National Olympic Committees have the exclusive authority for the representation of their respective countries at the Olympic Games. Therefore, the athletes’ participation at the Paris Games depends on their NOC selecting them to represent their delegation at Paris 2024.
