As the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2024 reaches its climax, Bangkok is set to welcome the top eight teams for the finals from Thursday to Sunday. The preliminary phase, which lasted one month, saw intense competition, culminating in the qualification of seven top teams alongside the host nation, Thailand.

Brazil concluded the preliminary phase unbeaten, emphatically sweeping defending champions Türkiye 3-0 (25-14, 25-14, 25-19) on Sunday. With an impressive tally of 34 points from 12 matches, Brazil heads into the finals aiming to secure their first VNL title after falling short in previous editions (2019, 2021, and 2022). They will face Thailand in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Despite their loss to Brazil, Türkiye also qualified for the Finals after finishing sixth in the preliminary phase with 25 points. They will launch their title defence against an on-form Poland side who finished third in the preliminary phase, on Friday.

Record champions USA, who have three titles to their name, clinched their place in the finals with a crucial 3-0 (25-15, 25-18, 26-24) victory over Japan on Sunday. Finishing seventh with 22 points, the USA will face 2022 champions Italy in Friday’s quarter-final.

China head into the quarter-final match against Japan spurred on by their 3-0 (25-23, 25-15, 25-19) victory against Poland on Sunday.

For the Netherlands, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Serbia and Germany, who lined up in the places from eighth to 12th, as well as for France, Korea and Bulgaria, who finished 14th, 15th and 16th, respectively, their VNL 2024 ends here.
