Likewise, the Australians have been a powerhouse of the Oceania. As a result, it will be a contest between two top tier nations. Naturally, there will be fierce rivalry during the match. Let us see who comes out on top on Wednesday.
What is the format of the Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship?
According to the AVC regulations, a maximum of 16 teams will be participating in the tournament. This is based on 1 host team, followed by 10 teams based on the final standing of the previous edition. Added to that, there will be 5 teams from each of the 5 zones. The AVC stated that there were originally fourteen entrant teams that were due to participate in the tournament. However, New Zealand and Sri Lanka have announced that they would withdraw from the tournament.
Teams were seeded in the first two positions of each pool following the serpentine system according to their previous rank. AVC reserved the right to seed the hosts as head of pool A regardless of the previous ranking. All teams not seeded were drawn to take other available positions in the remaining lines. Each pool had no more than three teams from the same zonal association. The draw was held in Bangkok, Thailand on 16 March 2023.
