Collecting over five million likes in 2017, the popularity of the FIVB's account continues to grow as it becomes a hub for volleyball, beach volleyball and snow volleyball fans around the world.

Over the last 12 months, players and fans everywhere helped to #ShareTheVolleyLove.

Players were also making some spectacular moves on and off the court, and sharing advice on becoming a champion.

In October, the FIVB announced an initiative that is set to revolutionise the sport – the Volleyball Nations League – bringing together the top men's and women's teams and a first class experience for the fans.

There is a lot more in store this year with the FIVB Volleyball World Championships taking place in September and October.

In a repeat of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, volleyball and beach volleyball will also be played at the most iconic venues at Tokyo 2020, Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028. And perhaps snow volleyball will feature at a future Winter Olympics too.

Such great news for the future of volleyball! It’s time to start training…
