FIVB World League
The Dallas Convention Center Arena will host the 2008 Olympic gold medal winning U.S. Men's National Volleyball Team along with national teams from Italy, France and Korea for an FIVB World League weekend on June 29-July 1.
Due to the 2012 Olympic Games, the 23rd edition of the World League tournament, the world's premier annual men's volleyball event, has a different format. The tournament will be held May 18-July 1 with the Final Round set to take place in Sofia, Bulgaria on July 4-8.
"We are really looking forward to competing in Dallas in front of players from the USA Volleyball Boys' National Championships," said U.S. Head Coach Alan Knipe (Huntington Beach, Calif.). "That will be an important World League weekend and we hope to travel from Dallas to Bulgaria for the final round."
For the first time in the tournament's history, the World League Intercontinental (pool play) Round, still featuring 16 teams across four pools, will be played over four weekends with each country hosting all four teams in their respective pool on one weekend each.
The four pool winners, plus the best second-place team and host Bulgaria will qualify for the Final Round.
The United States, which is ranked sixth in the world and won the 2008 World League, and third-ranked Italy, an eight-time World League winner, will be the favorites in Pool C as they battle with longtime volleyball power France and upstart Korea.
All four teams will navigate their campaign with qualification for the London Games, with Italy hosting one of the European Olympic qualification tournaments halfway through the World League.
