Rwanda and Kenya compete for gold with powerhouses Egypt in Zone 5 of World Champs qualifier

25 November 2013

Cairo, Egypt, November 24, 2013-  Five Men's Volleyball National teams will start the competition for two slots in the final phase of the 2014 FIVB Men's Volleyball World championship qualifier in Kigali, Rwanda on Tuesday.

 

 Host Rwanda along with giants Egypt, neighbours Kenya, Uganda and Burundi will play a five day round robin tournament where the top two teams of this competition secure their tickets directly to the final phase of the qualifier to be held during January and February 2014.  

 

 Egypt already reserved a ticket to the finals as one of the top three African teams in the FIVB World ranking and thus if they finished between the top two teams, the third team in the final ranking will clinch a berth in the final round.

 

 The Rwandan team had a long course preparation under supervision of their coach Paul Bitok who selected some of the prominent player from the Youth team U21 who participated in this year's Men's U21 World championship in Turkey.

 

 The tournament will define the last two slots in the finals after 13 teams already confirmed their way to this round which finally determine the three African tickets to the FIVB Men's World Championship to be held in Poland.
