The FIVB has confirmed that the China men’s national volleyball team will return to the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2022 line-up with the competition set to get underway this June.

China’s return follows their absence from the men’s VNL 2021 due to the logistics challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

China joins a world-class VNL line-up of 16 teams for an incredible celebration of volleyball in iconic locations around the world.


The VNL 2022 will kick off in just over one month with the men’s matches in Ottawa, Canada and Brasilia, Brazil on 7 June.

China has also qualified for the upcoming FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2022.
