The 2023 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournaments, alternatively the 2023 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup (for the tournament held in Japan) and also known as FIVB Road to Paris Volleyball Qualifier, are the three volleyball tournaments to be contested by 24 women’s national teams of the FIVB. The top teams will earn a place in the 2024 Summer Olympics volleyball tournament.
Sunday will see Mexico take on Ukraine to book a place for the Paris Olympics. Mexico is currently ranked twenty-fifth in the world rankings. While Ukraine is ranked twentieth in the world rankings. Heading into Sunday’s match, Mexico is coming after getting thrashed by Canada (0-3). On the other hand, Ukraine is also coming after getting thrashed by the Czech Republic (1-3). Naturally, either of the two teams would like to get a win under their belt.
What is the format of the Paris Olympics Volleyball Qualifier 2023 Women?
The FIVB Olympic Qualification Tournaments (OQTs) include the 24 best-placed non-qualified teams. However, Russia has not been granted permission to participate due to the ongoing Ukraine war. The rankings have been done on the basis of the FIVB World Rankings as of 18 September 2022. As the host nation, France has already secured its place in the women’s competitions. The other 11 quota places are allocated via a two-step qualification process that ensures the best volleyball nations can participate in the event while observing the principle of universality.
The first step of the process includes the allocation of six Olympic quota places. These are contested during the FIVB Road to Paris Volleyball Qualifiers. Out of this, the top 24 teams as per the World Ranking (WR) not yet qualified are split into three single round-robin pools of eight teams each. The top two teams of each pool qualify for Paris 2024. On the other hand, the remaining five places per gender are filled by selecting the top five not yet qualified teams in the WR. This will be decided at the end of the Preliminary Phase of Volleyball Nations League 2024. To guarantee the principle of universality, these teams are selected as per the following order of priority: 1) Teams from continents without qualified teams, and 2) Top teams not yet qualified.
