Men's Volleyball Club World C'ships: Preview, Schedule and streaming info
Ahmedabad Defenders qualified for the Volleyball Men's Club World Championship after winning the PVL earlier this year. The Indian club will open their campaign against Minas Tenis Clube on Wednesday evening.
The 18th FIVB Volleyball Men's Club World Championship will be taking place in Bengaluru from December 6 to 10. This will be the first time that this event is going to be held in India.
Volleyball World and FIVB, in January 2023, announced India as the host for the Men's Club World Championship for two years in partnership with the RuPay Prime Volleyball League, India's top professional volleyball league.
Bengaluru will also be the first Indian city to host the Men’s Club World Championship and the first in Asia to do it since 2012. As a result, India will host top players from across the world. Ahmedabad Defenders will represent the host nation after winning the domestic league season this year.
Ahmedabad Defenders are placed in Group A along with defending champion Italian club, Sir Safety Susa Perugia ( also known as Sir Sicoma Monini Perugia) and a Brazilian club named as Minas Tenis Clube.
Ahmedabad has a very tough task in hand in their debut season as Italy and Brazil are the two most successful counties in the history of the competition. But, this will be a great opportunity for Indian volleyball players to experience a world-class competition.
