Iran knows its rivals at VNL 2022

TEHRAN, Jan. 26 (MNA) – Iran’s National Men’s Volleyball Team has learned its rivals at the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

Iran’s National Men’s Volleyball Team will compete with 12 teams in three hosts countries of Brazil, Bulgaria and Russia in different stages of the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

The Philippines and Bulgaria will host the second week of the tournament, which will be held from June 21 to July 26 and the Iranian men's volleyball team will face Bulgaria, USA, Brazil and Canada in Sofia, respectively, which is a very difficult and breathtaking week.

The third and final week of the 2022 Nations League preliminary stage will be held in Japan and Russia from July 5 to 10, and Behrouz Atai's players will compete against Italy, Serbia, Slovenia and Poland in the Russian city of Kemerovo.
