Trinidad & Tobago are the only team amongst the 24 entrants to make their World Championship debut in 2018. It is a truly historic moment for the team, who have never competed in any other world event.
The Caribbean side finished 31st in their sole FIVB World Grand Prix appearance last year, and have been a strong competitor in nine North and Central America & Caribbean (NORCECA) Championships. Their best finish came in 2013 when they ranked 6th.
Trinidad & Tobago narrowly missed out on an unprecedented international medal at the 2010 Central American & Caribbean Games of 2010, when they lost 3-1 to Costa Rica in the bronze medal match.
