Women's Volleyball World Championship history
The 2018 Women's Volleyball World Championship will be the 18th time the tournament has been staged. The FIVB Women's World Championships were first staged in the Soviet Union in 1952, three years after the first Men's World Volleyball Championships. Ever since 1970 the tournament has been held every four years, just like other major sporting events like the Football and Rugby World Cups. The most successful volleyball nation at the Women's Volleyball World Championship is Russia, however, they won five of their seven tournaments as the Soviet Union. Other successful volleyball nations include Italy, Cuba, China, Japan and the USA. Japan have hosted the tournament on five occasions (the fifth will be this year), while Brazil and Russia (Soviet Union) have both hosted the Women's Volleyball World Championship more than once.
So who will win the 2018 Women's Volleyball World Championship? Many are tipping hosts Japan as they have home advantage, however, maybe Asian rivals China or Korea will take the crown this year.
