FIVB World Championship 2019 | Hamburg, Germany

  • Neighboring Germany takes the torch from Austria as the northern port of Hamburg will host the 2019 World Championship. Source. Germany will host the Worlds for the second time in history, Berlin had the previous honour back in 2005.


    A lot will happen until then, but who knows, maybe finally a good reason to visit Tim in Hamburg ;) Or even earlier for the World Tour Finals this year!

    Changed the title of the thread from “FIVB World Championship 2019” to “FIVB World Championship 2019 | Hamburg, Germany”.
  • 45 out of 48 WCH participants have been announced. The last 3 teams will be determined via Wild Cards. There are only 2 German duos in the men's list so far, so some of those Wild Cards will/should probably be assigned to the host nation.

    Its gonna be cool and yes, if someone is intending to come over here or is in need of travel advice, just let me know.:wavy::drink:


    EDIT:

    Just by todays news, the wildcards will go to:

    Bergmann/Harms (GER)

    Walkenhorst/Winter (GER)

    Ranghieri/Caminati (ITA)

  • The World Championship started already! Carambula-Rossi have entered the competition in the last minute, following the travel issues of the 45th-seeded Kamara-Bangura from Sierra Leone. The Italians will take their place in Pool D.

  • Is there a way to watch the matches live? I know there are some streams on youtube but they don't always work for me..

    Difficult to say. I am only doing fine because I got FIVB's special package where you pay once for the VNL, the BVB WCH, the Olympics qualifiers, the World Cup, and the Club World Cup altogether. It was a good deal, I believe. No idea how the situation with the live streams looks like, though.

    And as is often the case, late arrivals usually do great. Carambula-Rossi enjoyed a great tournament and reached the quarterfinals.


    Great beach volleyball in the semis yesterday. The "giant killers", as Thole-Wickler are now known due to their impressive run against much more decorated pairs in the tournament, did the unthinkable and eliminated the super favourites from Norway. Although, I have to admit, I think there was a brutal referee mistake at 12-11 in the tie-break. The 24th point was granted to the hosts but it was a massive carry. Still, it doesn't diminish the amazing job the Germans had done. I thought Norway were still in control of that tie-break, but Wickler was decisive with his aces.


    Speaking of aces, this is one of the greatest weapons of Oleg Stoyanovskiy. The Russians are tough to beat when the offensive specialist serves like that. They should've even closed the first semifinal in straight sets but an unpredictable blackout by Krasilnikov brought, I think, 5 points in a row for the Americans and helped them reach the decider. Bourne-Tr. Crabb may not be the most spectacular team out there, or even in the semis, but they have had a very decent season, so their WCH placement should not be touted as a real surprise.

  • Congrats to team Russia! A great tournament for them! Oleg Stoyanovskiy beat the record set by Andre Loyola 2 years ago in Vienna and is now the youngest ever world champion. Krasilnikov has been one of the top defenders in the Tour and now finally won a major title in his career. Russia also won the World Championship for the first time, beating their previous best - silver by Kolodinsky-Barsouk in 2007.


    As the podium was all European, the European Championship next month in Moscow promises to be really interesting.
