Adding to the prestige of the event, Ms Sun Yue, former Olympic Silver Medalist of the China Women’s National Volleyball Team, has been appointed as the Event Ambassador that will ensure even greater public support this year.  

Mr Victor Hui, GBS, JP, President of The Volleyball Association of Hong Kong, China, remarked in his speech, “The 28 participating teams of the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix have been allocated into 3 Groups according to their world rankings and the Hong Kong leg will feature the group of the highest level. With that said, the 4 teams of the Hong Kong stage are very well-matched, so the competition will be extremely tough. China, Italy and Japan are all ranked within the world’s top 5, whilst Thailand has defeated China and Japan to win the Asian Volleyball Championship in the past. With a roster as strong as the finals, volleyball fans are sure to see the very best skills in what is building up to be some of the greatest matches in the series. ”
