The Argentine volleyball team must qualify for the Olympic Games through the FIVB world rankingFEVA

Seven teams of those that will enter the VNL have already qualified for Paris 2024: France, as host; Germany, Brazil, the United States, Japan, Poland and Canada through the three Pre-Olympics. The remaining five places will be defined through the world ranking of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and Argentina seeks to access the Olympic Games through that means. He is currently sixth in the rankings, but of the teams ahead of him, only Italy is still out of the Olympic event. Behind, nearby, you have Slovenia and Serbia. In this framework, the albiceleste is very close to getting the ticket to defend the bronze medal she achieved in Tokyo 2020.

The championship has been played five times since it replaced the so-called World League in 2018 and the top winner is Russia with two stars. The European team won the first two editions, but will not participate in the current one because it continues to be banned from international tournaments by the FIVB as a result of the war conflict with Ukraine. In 2021, after a 2020 without activity due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the champion was Brazil and in 2022 France celebrated. Poland is the current winner of the competition thanks to the fact that it won the 2023 version and there are four countries that celebrated in the championship.
