2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League

 

Canada, China and Japan will join the U.S. Men's National Team for three days of FIVB Volleyball Nations League Matches on June 21-23, 2019.

  International volleyball returns to Hoffman Estates, Ill., in 2019 as the Sears Centre Arena will host the world No. 2-ranked U.S. Men along with Canada, China and Japan on June 21-23 for FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL). The VNL consists of sixteen top men’s volleyball teams playing a round-robin format with each country hosting a weekend of matches over six weeks. Six teams will advance to the final round, which will be in the United States on July 10-14 at a site to be determined. The U.S. Men won the bronze medal at the 2018 VNL Final Round in France. The team went on to win the bronze medal at the 2018 FIVB World Championship in Italy. A focus for the U.S. Men in 2019 will be evaluating players as the team prepares to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. “I expect this season to be really competitive as our players look forward to 2020,” U.S. Head Coach John Speraw said. Among the U.S. players expected to compete are 2018 Olympic medalists Matt Anderson, Micah Christenson, Max Holt, Aaron Russell, Taylor Sander, David Smith and Erik and Kawika Shoji. Middle blocker Jeff Jendryk, who is also expected to compete, grew up in nearby Wheaton, Ill., and played college volleyball at Loyola of Chicago.
