Host City: Rosario
Volleyball’s popularity has grown hugely in Argentina over the past few years. The men’s national team reached the London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games and in 2016 the men’s team was joined by their women’s counterparts, who qualified for their first Olympic Games.
In 1993 Rosario was the host for the FIVB Men’s U21 World Championship and in 2011 the capital Buenos Aires and Almirante were the host cities when Argentina held the Boy’s U19 World Championship. This Year, Rosario will host another Age group event, the Girls U18 World Championship.
