April 17, 2014 (ISN) – With only a month to go, Volleyball Canada is pleased to release the final schedule of matches for the World Championships Qualifications tournament at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, ON.

The teams are vying for spots in the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Championships to be held in Poland (men) and Italy (women) next September and October.

The events in Canada are part of the third round for the NORCECA (North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation) qualifying process, with the winner of each the men and women’s tournament advancing to their respective World Championship.

“It’s very important that both our men’s and women’s teams qualify in Mississauga, so this makes it very exciting for our coaches and athletes,” said Julien Boucher, Volleyball Canada’s High Performance Director. “We’re looking forward to making our home-country fans proud!”

As a test event for the upcoming Pan Am Games, this tournament gives fans a taste of the excitement coming to Toronto next summer!

Day passes are available at Ticketmaster.ca, and include all four matches at 2, 4, 6 and 8 pm. Seating for the round-robin matches is general admission and children under 12 are admitted free of charge! Parking is also free at the Hershey Centre for this event.
