  • Russia’s schedule is worse for finish with USA and BRA to play.

    USA had Korea and Cameroon after RUS.

    USA could lose and still comeback in front of Russia with loss to Brazil.

    If Russia lose to USA, then for sure we will have a bomb of a match on the very last day RUSxBRA how more classic can it get two teams with great rivalry:box:

    IF Rossiya team does beat the U.S. team, then be rest assured that we all will have an even bigger bomb on the very last match of RUS v BRA for the very stake on the table is huuuge, the Silver medal.... handed out along with 90 WR points plus handsome sum of prize money (cf. the Bronze one) :whistle:

  • 2019 FIVB World Cup organizer awards generous prize money to players


    Just like in any sports, Volleyball players compete for their national teams as an act of honor. But, of course, they expect a compensation fee for playing because it is guaranteed to them by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) who distributes money to national federations. Players will now have an extra motive to play in the FIVB World Cup...


    As Gian Luca Pasini informed in his blog, the organizer of the upcoming World Cup, both in male and female competition, and that is Japan, will offer generous prize money to players. The total prize money is the same as in the FIVB Nations League, 2,110,000 US Dollars, and will be equally divided between both genders. But unlike the VNL, it will be mostly divided among players and not among national federations.


    The FIVB has decided that federation will get rewards only as reimbursement of expenses, while the majority of the money is left to the athletes. But, the money will be spread among players via federations. The distribution of the prize money will be made as follows:


    1st place – $600,000 for players; $30,000 for federation

    2nd place – $300,000 for players; $15,000 for federation

    3rd place – $100,000 for players; $10,000 for federation

  • The relevant Medal Race matches in the last leg, Osaka:


    27/9:

    China v Netherlands

    Russia v USA


    28/9:

    South Korea v Brazil

    Dominican Republic v Netherlands

    China v Serbia


    29/9:

    Russia v Brazil

    Japan v Netherlands



    Theoretically the medal races are still open to all top five teams at below.


    The point table after eight matches, three more to go!

  • Point alone may mislead inattentive viewers.


    Following tweet by a well-known Filipino volleyball blogger, TwoCityTrails, presents the medal race contenders in a more vivid way.

  • Brazil and Netherlands can't afford to lose anymore matches if they want to medal. So realistically, Brazil hopes USA to beat Russia to have a chance at a bronze.

  • The still open medal race keeps the tournament in some suspense until the last days :whistle:


    and the outcomes of the upcoming Friday's matches will tell us a lot about the would-be conclusions!


    Basically the Team Rossiya has the equal opportunity as the Team USA.

  • a win by russia.against usa or brazil ithink.will guarantee them a medal?!

    .assuming russia beats usa and will lose to brazil it will be 9-2d for russia and also to usa (9-2) so it will boils down to points system brazil will be 8-3..if russia loses to usa and wins against brazil usa will take the silver and bronze for russia..if russia both lose their against brazil and usa russia will have the same standing with brazil and so it will be points system for the bronze...( ididnt include the dutch team because their next match is against china assuming they will lose..)

    Yeah, just one win is enough to medal.


    Assuming they win their last match.

  • Well, Russia only needs to win 2 sets against the US and then win against Kenya so that the match against Brazil will not matter at all.


    I hope the US beats Russia in 3 sets of course :whistle:

    Russia needs to beat USA to guarantee a medal. If not, they will have to beat Brazil or win 2 sets against Brazil to win by sets tie breaker. Brazil can still get max 24 points to beat Russia if Russia were to get 1 point from USA and 3 points from Kenya and lose 3 points against Brazil, ending with Brazil 8-3 and Russia 8-3 with Brazil edging Russia 24 to 23 points tiebreaker.

  • I hope the US beats Russia in 3 sets of course :whistle:

    Russia beat USA in straight sets last 2015 WC but I'm guessing we are gonna have a 5 setter this time around just like WCH :box:

  • Worst case scenario for fans is Russia beating USA, eliminating Netherlands and Brazil from medal contention. Best case is USA beating Russia and Netherlands winning against China. Then we have 3 teams competing for bronze.

  • Netherlands winning against China. Then we have 3 teams competing for bronze.

    Has NED A actually beaten CHN A before? Even so, China is looking mighty fine right now I doubt NED can even take a set against them

    At this Olympic cycle I don't think so, but they did in Rio 2016
