Overview

Team profile

Mexico

Mexico make their eighth appearance this year in the FIVB World Championships. They made their debut in the competition in 1970 and had their best placing to-date at the very next edition four years later, which they hosted in Guadalajara, finishing 10th. At the last World Championship in 2014, Mexico finished 21st.
They have only once competed at an Olympic Games; at Mexico City 1968 when they had an automatic berth as hosts. The team finished seventh. 
Once a dominant force in North and Central American volleyball from the 1950s to the 1970s, Mexico took the gold medal on their debut at the Pan-American Games in 1955, and followed that by claiming bronze in 1963, 1971 and 1975. It was a similar story at the North and Central America and Caribbean (NORCECA) Championships, with triumphs in 1969 and 1971 followed by bronze medal performances in 1975, 1979 and 1981.
