Japan will host the 2018 edition of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship just two years ahead of the next Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. A nation of volleyball fans will get a chance to see the world’s top teams play for the FIVB’s ultimate prize at state-of-the-art venues across the country.
Japan has played a key role in the development of volleyball worldwide and the sport first became an Olympic event on the occasion of the Tokyo Olympics in 1964.
The 2018 edition of the Women's World Championship follows on from the highly successful FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship Italy 2014. Japan hosted the Women's World Championships in Tokyo in 2010 and Osaka in 2006.
