2022 FIVB World Championship - Russia

  • Russia was confirmed as the host of the 2022 World Men's Volleyball Championship. The other candidates were Mexico and Qatar.

    The tournament will be organized in 7 or 8 cities and so far only Moscow and St.Petersburg are confirmed for sure.

  • It's a bit disappointing for Russian NT this year. They won VNL but can not squeeze into top 4 in WCH. They will aim at the golden medal in 2022. Leon could play for Polish NT since 2019. Poland is also very competitive.

    One word: "Peak". If a team performed at the highest level, surely they can't maintain that form/level in just a couple of months into the future. But everyone seems to agree that Russia was not playing at their best, Mikhaylov in particular received some criticism due to his form during WCH (or lack thereof). Also, WCH 2022 will be Mikhaylov's last chance to win the only medal he doesn't have in possession, same for Muserskiy and other legionaries like Butko, etc.

    I think either Butko or Grankin will be out of 2022 WCH. They are too old after 4 years. Kovalev will be the main setter for Russian NT. Muserskiy will be in the team if he has no big injury. Even Mikhaylov can not guarantee his spot in 2022. The WC 2019 is the first test.
