Vietnam to compete at volleyball women’s club world championship

VOV.VN - Vietnamese players are set to vie for the 2023 International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship which is scheduled to take place in China from December 11 to 17.

Vietnam have qualified for the global tournament for the first time after winning the championship title at the 2023 Asian Women's Club Volleyball Championship which concluded on May 2 in Vinh Phuc province.

The FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship consists of six clubs, including Vakifbank Istanbul and Eczacibasi Dynavit of Turkey, Praia Clube and Gerdau Minas of Brazil, Sport Center 1 of Vietnam, and the hosts China.

Teams are to be divided into two groups, with the top two teams in each group advancing to the semi-final stage.

Volleyball star Tijana Boskovic, who receives the highest salary in the sport, will play for Eczacıbası Dynavit of Turkey. She recently helped Serbia to win the FIVB World Championship 2022.

Vietnamese players who recently won a silver medal at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 32) will have the chance to test themselves against many leading volleyball players in the upcoming tournament.

They are currently taking part in a training camp in Quang Ninh province to prepare for Challenge Cup 2023 which will see the top Asian teams taking on each other. The competition will be held in Indonesia in mid-June.
