Team profile


    Argentina are making their sixth appearance in the FIVB World Championship this year. It is the first time in the nation’s history that they return for back-to-back appearances after finishing 17th in 2014. Their debut in the competition was in 1960, where they ended in eighth place, their best performance to date.
    Despite not having won any major trophies, Argentina have finished runners-up at the South American Championship six times. In the last two editions they ranked fourth.
    In 2016, Argentina made history by qualifying for their first ever Olympic Games, finishing ninth overall in Rio after overcoming Cameroon in pool play. Steady progression saw them take part in this year’s Volleyball Nations League, and the team will be hoping to impress once more at the World Championship.
