Mirosław Przepełski, FIVB member:
"After the end of the VNL, the next official tournament for the Polish national team will be the qualification for the Olympic Games, which will be held on August 9-11 in Gdansk. It will definitely be the most important representative tournament this year. Vital Heynen coach will be able to put fourteen volleyball players in the match squad, but nothing has changed in terms of the size of the squad for the Olympic Games. - For today the Olympic team's matchmaking team is expected to include a maximum of twelve players, this is related to the cost of accommodation. Although FIVB has been struggling for years to increase this number to fourteen" said Przedpełski.
The Olympics has limited the number of players 12 per team, not the FIVB. For the qualifying matches it probably will be 14 per FIVB rules.
