I wonder if the participants will be Brazil, Russia, China, Japan, USA and wild card. Flavours of the past, since those are the historical teams of women volleyball + Cuba. So in this case FIVB would give Cuba the wild card to make it a more retro competition. :D We never know with FIVB

for WGCC, the wc always goes to a team that the host can easily beat....
so your guesswork could come true, lets see..
i may not be the tallest,
the fastest, or the strongest,
but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
to be me...

I don't understand why African champions can not participate in this tournament. Its name is Grand Champions Cup. But in every edition we're seeing South Korea as a team given "wild card" !!! I think Japan+ 5 continental champion is more suitable and fairer. :teach:

Maybe yes, but this team would be like Algeria in WGP, every match 0-3 and difficulties with achieving 15 sets in single set :whistle:

Yeah, it's another point of view. But i think FIVB should give more chances to African teams. For example, in grand prix 2 spots for Africa can be good. Therefore, they will be more experienced and they can struggle with good teams.

Even if Algeria plays 100 matches per year against top teams from all over the world, they won't win a single one. Experience alone won't help them...

Exactly, also continental qualifications for Olympic Games should be changed to World Qualifications. Especially Olympic Games should be place for best teams. Frequently weak host team takes one precious place, so second place for Africa is too much.

WGCC is commercial tournament and I understand, that Japan do not want so see weak teams.

Who has been the Wild Card, the last 4 times this tournament was held? South Korea!

If China wins the Asian Championship, I could see Thailand or South Korea as Wild Card, baring some crazy stuff happening in Norceca, like the Dominican Republic winning. Africa's teams are just too weak on the women's side for this tournament. On the men's side they will perform better but African teams in FIVB events have had dismal performances.

2002 World Championships, 0-10 (Kenya & Egypt), 1 set won (Kenya)
2003 World Cup, 0-11 Egypt, 0 sets won
2004 Olympics, 0-5 Kenya, 0 sets won
2006 World Championships, 0-15 (Cameroon, Kenya & Egypt) 3 sets won (Kenya only)
2007 World Cup, 0-11 Kenya, 2 sets won
2008 Olympics, 0-5 Algeria, 1 set won
2010 World Championships, 0-10 (Kenya & Algeria), 0 sets won
2011 World Cup, 0-20 (Algeria & Kenya) (taking out the Algeria 3-1 win over Kenya), 3 sets won (1 Algeria (4 total), 2 Kenya (3 total))
2012 Olympics, 0-5 Algeria, 2 sets won
2013 World Grand Prix 0-9 Algeria, 0 sets won

Total numbers 2002 to 2013, 0-101, 12 sets won

No way, Italy won't get wild card this time even because nobody wants it. Grand Champions Cup is such a meaningless competition, and besides that Italian federation is now deciding whether firing or not Mencarelli :lol: so it's not the case to ask for a wild card

4 years ago FIVB gave Wild Card to Champion Egypt in Men's event as easy bite for Host.

Curious if now in Women's event Japan will risk and will give Wild Card to Korea with Kim or to Kenya.
