Olympic Games - Brazil 2016 (qualification process)

  • If Brazil finish first or second in their regional championship (not Olympic Qualifier) they will play in the World Cup. So, Brazil could win the World Cup, but the 2nd and 3rd place teams receive the automatic qualifier spots for Rio.


    Zé Roberto was saying some days ago, he will suggest the Olympic arena Maracanãzinho to host the World Cup. I can't see this coming because Japan is conventionally the host but it's a worthwhile a shot.

  • If European Championship will be from 26/09/2015 to 04/10/2015 and World Cup will be from 22/08/2015 to 06/09/2015... What will be the qualification for the World Cup in Europe? For men is the same question.

  • What kind of competition is "European Games"? Never heard of it ?(

  • Really early :what: so continental championships should be organised at latest in July/early August, while WGP should be even earlier...

    In World Cup 2015 will play two best-ranked teams from each continent, host and the 2014 World Champion. Continental confederations could organise addictional qualification tournament to World Cup, but in 2015 it's impossible. It'll too many matches & competitions :) So, the FIVB ranking after 2014 will be very important.

    Probably rankings will be after World League-2015 and Grand Prix-2015 in july... Strange system

  • The format is really tricky and could lead to weak teams participating in Olympic Games. Let's see what can happen:


    Brazil (1) is already qualified, so Argentina (2) may take the spot for South America
    China (3) and USA (4) may win the two World Cup spots, this means two more places for Asia and North America, which could go to Japan (5) and Dominican Republic (6).
    A spot for Africa (7) and one for Europe (8.). Let's say Tunisia and Russia, just to make an example.


    Just four places left - three from one tournament and one from another. Let's say that South Korea (9), Turkey (10) and Serbia (11) take the places from the former.


    The 12th place will go to Colombia/Peru/Uruguay/Cuba/Puerto Rico/Mexico/Kenya/Algeria/Cameroon.


    Serbia and Russia should win the two World Cup spots, so three more teams from Europe can qualify. It will be really hard!


  • Oh yes, it will. It is a bit strange that in Men's WCH in top 12 were 6 teams from Europe and in Women's 7 teams, but at OG there are often 6 men's teams and only 4 from Europe. Of course all situation is thanks to Japan :) :) :):rose:
    But I hardly believe, that Russian girls can get ticket to OG from World Cup. European Qualification Tournament will be very interesting - even highest ranked teams can loose their chance for OG there.

    Let's hope that tournament will take place in Ankara one more time. :)

    President of Polish Federation said that Poland will apply to organize this tournament. As I guess, he is quite determined to get this tournament. Doubtful that Turkey will host this tournament once again, but there is way to fight with another arguments.
