North Texas will host week 2 of the preliminary phase at the College Park Center in Arlington from May 28-June 2.

“I am thrilled to announce women’s Volleyball Nations League will be returning to Arlington, Texas.” Finn Taylor, Volleyball World CEO said. “Seeing the passion, unwavering support and sold out crowds for the VNL Finals at College Park last year, we knew we had to return to the Metroplex. Fans will be able to see top-notch athletes and heart pouncing action as these teams compete for a spot in the VNL Finals, the last major event prior to the Paris Olympics.”

Volleyball is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States and the city of Arlington is the perfect place to host the world’s best, and a great opportunity for Texas to show the unique volleyball culture they are known for.

“We are thrilled to once again host Volleyball Nations League athletes from around the world at The University of Texas at Arlington’s beautiful College Park Center. We hope these prime competitors and their supporters have an opportunity to enjoy the rich cultural experiences available here in The American Dream City during their stay,” Arlington Mayor Jim Ross said.

Arlington has gained a reputation for hosting the greatest athletes and sporting events in the world. We are beyond excited to say that Volleyball Nation’s League and the athletes competing in this event are definitely the ‘best of the best’. This is an incredible opportunity for a global audience to begin a journey with their favorite team and there’s no better place to start than Arlington, Texas!”– Matt Wilson, Senior Vice President of Sports & Events; Executive Director, Arlington Sports Commission.  

The U.S. Women’s National Team took the Volleyball Nations League by storm when the competition was launched in 2018. After winning gold in Nanjing, China, at the Finals of the first edition, Coach Karch Kiraly’s team also claimed victory at the next two tournaments in 2019 and 2021. That amazing winning streak was interrupted in 2022, when USA lost to Serbia in the quarterfinals. In 2023 at College Park in Arlington, the U.S. Women battled to make it to the medal round where they lost to Poland in the bronze medal match. The reigning Olympic champions are sure to be among the favorites for 2024.

Volleyball World will provide fans, athletes, partners, and other sport afficionados with the ultimate volleyball experience. It will be memorable for all attendees whether new to the sport or a volleyball pro.
