Overview

Team profile

Belgium

After two decades away from
the international stage, Belgium have gradually established themselves as a
force once again. They made their FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix debut in
2014 and won Group 2 by defeating the Netherlands 3-2 to claim victory in the
Final Four. They progressed to the Final Six of Group 1 but failed to win a
match and finished sixth. Belgium finished 10th overall after being promoted to
Group 1 in the following year, defeating Turkey in their first match and Russia
in their last match in the preliminary round. Belgium have also competed at
three World Championships. In 2014, they finished in joint-11th place. Belgium
began competing consistently at a continental level in the 1960s, making their
European Championship debut in 1967 and appearing three more times over the
next 20 years. They finished 14th in 1967 and 12th in 1975, 1979 and 1987. In
2007 a seventh-place finish paved the way for greater things. They slipped to
11th in 2009 but returned to have a breakthrough year in 2013 when they claimed
a silver medal in the European League and two months later travelled to the
European Championship. There they defeated Serbia for the bronze medal.
