What a drama in the final moments of :BEL vs :CAN :yikes:Heynen almost forfeited the match after absurd mistake by the referee... still a deserved win for canada, although I would say both  teams deserve to qualify to final 6

Relax, even if you end up last, FIVB will probably change the format again to keep you with the elite, like they did with Russia.

Which teams will have the permanent status and why the hell for 7 years??? And which teams will be invited? Netherlands finished top 15 last three years, but is not on the list. If for example The Netherlands and Slovenia doesn't have the chance to collect points for the World Ranking, there is - in the new Qualification procedure for the OG - no chance for the Netherlands and Slovenia (and many others) to qualify. It's a shame FIVB!!!

Thank you, thank you very much :old: :roflmao:

 

A closed system, shoking, not... 7 years of course is absurd, actually the whole format is absurd, but that has become a tradition with the League. France were shit for 10 years and weren't on the map and who is to say that another team won't have a slump too. But hey they have are a big name (market), we will keep them forever, who cares about strenght.

 

If i had to guess the 12 would be - Brazil, Russia, USA, Poland, France, Italy, Serbia, Argentina, Iran, Canada, probably us or Japan or Germany..

And of Course, FiVB just HAD to push J$p$n into the group of non-relega ting teams :lol: after all they are world class team, not some amateurs from Slovenia  or Germany :lol:

 

Honestly, if this passes, I am done with the World League (or "12 teams only" league) farce starting next year

To be fair World League should have 16 teams and another 16 the second division and 2 teams to be relegated/advance between them

Okay, I am all in for 16 teams in all three divisions, but the teams who would be promoted to first group should be Germany, Slovenia, Australia and maybe another european team to try and keep the level. Not Japan and China. This looks just like a money grab by FIVB. I am not saying this current sistem is good, (mostly because of half-empty stadiums during matches - i dont get it why FIVB changed the system after 2015  either) but is still much better than the proposed one. The World League already seems not so prestigious as few years ago. But if this system comes to life... :(

Canada is out only if you win and if Bulgaria also wins, which is definitely not "99% sure".
