“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 VNL by storm when the competition launched in 2018. After winning gold at the Finals of the first edition in Nanjing, China, 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 the U.S. Women 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.
