When will Polish volleyball players meet their opponents at the Olympic Games? Now everything is clear

Must read

This will be a special time for Polish volleyball fans. In June, Lodz will host not only the Nations League final, but also the draw for the groups of the men’s Olympic Games tournament.

After last year’s success of Polish volleyball players, fans are looking forward to this season. This is because the most important event of the four-year period – the Olympic Games – will be held in Paris at the turn of July and August. Meanwhile, in the 21st century, the Polish national team was eliminated from the quarterfinals of the Olympic tournament every time, so there is a huge appetite to break this bad streak.

Nations League final and group stage draw in one

The final tournament of the Nations League will take place on June 27-30 at the Atlas Arena in Lodz. It turns out that this is not the only important event that will happen in Poland at this time. Well, on June 26 in Lodz the draw for groups of the men’s Olympic tournament will take place, which players, coaches and fans are waiting for. It is then that we will meet the first opponents of the Polish national team. In an interview with Interia, this information was confirmed by the Secretary General of the Polish Volleyball Association, Jacek Senk.

– The FIVB trusted us because we have been organizing excellent events for many years. They proposed to hold a draw on the eve of the final tournament. Now we will know all the teams that have qualified for the Olympic Games. I hope that the draw will be successful for us,” said Jacek Senk.

Will the Poles repeat the result of Gdansk?

Last year, Polish volleyball players won the Nations League, winning at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk after a final match against the United States. This season, Nikola Grbic’s team will defend the title and, perhaps, they will be able to do this with more fans in the stands.

And all because the Atlas Arena in Lodz seats 13.5 thousand volleyball fans, which is more than the Ergo Arena. In any case, the League of Nations will become a “warm-up” before the Olympic Games. In between these events will be the Hubert Wagner Memorial (July 12-14).
