Lausanne, Switzerland, November 19, 2020 - Volleyball's new generation take to the court before a world audience at a turning point of their careers, in action this weekend at the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Women's U23 World Championship featuring in the continuing series of the Volleyball World full match replays on YouTube.

The replays include the semifinals of the competition, Slovenia vs Bulgaria and Turkey vs the Dominican Republic, followed by the bronze medal match between the Dominican Republic and Bulgaria, plus the grand final with Turkey up against hosts Slovenia.

The 2017 U23 World Championships provided a platform to test a new scoring system. Matches were played to best-of-seven sets with each set to 15 points (with at least a two-point difference needed). Three ranking points were awarded to teams winning 4-0, 4-1 or 4-2. Two points went to the winner of a 4-3 match with one point for the loser.
