Volleyball Nation’s League

Fans awaiting an announcement as to where to watch the Volleyball Nation’s League in the United States finally have their answer as FloVolleyball has been selected as right holder in the USA by VNL partner IMG.

USA Volleyball was not a part of the broadcast arrangements and does not have a partnership with the website. The decision of a broadcast outlet came through the FIVB Nations League’s partnership with IMG, one of the event’s joint founders.

In collaboration with IMG, the FIVB will look to grow the global popularity and excitement around indoor volleyball by “promoting a compelling on-court narrative, which is easy for fans to engage with and understand,” the FIVB sad by in its October introduction of the event.

This is the first time the FIVB is taking control of content production, etc. Previously, the organization has worked with local federations on production and broadcast arrangements.

The website will stream the entirety of the men’s and women’s VNL seasons, beginning with the opening round of women’s pool play, May 15-17.

Viewing requires a PRO account to watch live or on-demand, which typically costs $29.99 per month or 150.00 per year (12.50 monthly).

Matches begin at 4 a.m. ET Tuesday with Belgium taking on Korea in Ningbo, China.

More information about the teams, the format and locations of the women’s VNL tournament is here.

VolleyMob will be previewing all four initial pools of the women’s VNL on Monday: Pool 1 and Pool 2 are available now. Check back later in the day for Pool 3 and 4 previews.
