Drawing of lots? Wasn't there going to be a fixed pool composition based on the rankings? Also let's see who is going to be "lucky" and get the Brazil group :d

I also think it weird of "draw", let's see what happen on next week's draw live streaming.

Qualifying tournaments will be held in Japan, China and Brazil from 30 September - 8 October 2023.


The group draw will be held on Friday, March 17th. Apparently FIVB might drop the long-standing serpentine rankings system but nobody still knows...

If the Japanese money still counts the most, they will never drop the serpentine system...


if I'm not wrong, the Japanese teams would both get the easiest draw and will host the sponsor-favourite Italy as among the women as among the men.


men's draw with serpentine should be something like this (Russia are not included):


    A          B           C

:BRA   :JPN   :CHN
:USA   :ITA   :POL
:ARG   :SLO   :IRI
:NED   :CUB   :SRB
:TUR   :CAN   :UKR
:TUN   :MEX   :GER
:EGY   :BEL   :CZE
:QAT   :FIN   :BUL

OK, now we have more news...


the draw for the OQTs will be Tomorrow, March 17th at 1 p.m. CET (Live for Free on FIVB Youtube Channel)


:RUS are OUT


the 24 teams will be divided into 8 pots with 3 teams each, according to the World Ranking.


however, the top 3 seeds will be the organizers of the 3 tournaments (also ranked according to the WR).


therefore, we will have a draw following this path:


seeded teams: the 3 hosts,:BRA (pool A), :JPN (pool B), :CHN (pool C)


then, we will have 7 pots with 3 teams each one (always according to the WR): 1 team from each pot will be drawn in each pool to build the 3 8-team tournaments (the top 2 of each tournament will qualify to Paris 2024).


Pot #1: :ITA:POL:USA  

Pot #2: :ARG:SLO:IRI 

Pot #3: :SRB:CUB:NED 

Pot #4: :TUR:CAN:UKR  

Pot #5: :GER:MEX:TUN 

Pot #6: :EGY:BEL:CZE 

Pot #7: :BUL:FIN:QAT

is it possible to withdraw now ? I mean we got the toughest group possible. it's impossible to qualify and more importantly we will lose lots of ranking points here. not playing is better than losing


I wish we could withdraw and focus on the Asian Games instead :d (more or less at the same time)
