FIVB World League History


The FIVB World League is an annual competition featuring the top men's volleyball squads in the world. The tournament was first played in 1990 to provide volleyball fans with another event to watch apart from the Olympic Games and World Championship, which are held in four-year cycles.  

Italy dominated the early years of the tournament, winning five of the first six editions including the first three stagings. The mighty Italians featured the likes of Andrea Zorzi and Lorenzo Bernardi. Brazil, the Netherlands and Cuba were the other countries that won titles in the 1990s.

The Brazilians made their impact the following decade where they won seven titles including five consecutive triumphs between 2003 and 2007. They also won a record ninth World League crown in 2010. Russia, the United States and Poland shared the spotlight with the Brazilians in recent years. France made history in 2015 when it became the first team from Group 2 to win a World League title.

Serbia swept Brazil in last season's final in Krakow to win its maiden World League crown. Brazil is the most successful team in this competition with nine titles while Italy is ranked next with eight.
