FIVB World Grand Prix History


The FIVB World Grand Prix is an annual competition featuring the top women's volleyball squads in the world. The tournament was first played in 1993 to provide volleyball fans with another event to watch aside from the Olympic Games and World Championship, which are held in four-year cycles. 

Cuba won the inaugural edition of Grand Prix but Brazil dominated the competition in the 1990s with three titles. The United States, Russia and China also had their share of success before the Brazilians resumed their dominance in the mid-2000s where they won five titles including three straight championships from 2004 to 2006. The Americans duplicated Brazil's three-peat by winning titles in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The last nine Grand Prix crowns have been won by either Brazil or the United States. Brazil is the most successful team in this competition with 11 titles.
