Team profile


The Netherlands have been competing in the FIVB World Grand Prix on and off since their first appearance in the second edition in 1994. In 2007 they registered their biggest success in the competition, finishing the Intercontinental Round in fifth place on a 9-6 record, but storming through the Final Six in Ningbo undefeated to claim gold. After topping Group 2 in 2015 to gain promotion to Group 1, they returned to the podium last year with a bronze medal in the Final Six in Bangkok.
They capped their Grand Prix success with a brilliant run at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for a fourth-place finish – their best in three appearances after sixth in Barcelona 1992 and fifth in Atlanta 1996. Their best finish in 13 tries at the FIVB World Championship was seventh place in 1998. The Netherlands have also been quite successful in the European Championships, taking the title in 1995 and also collecting a bronze in 1985 and three silver in 1991, 2009 and most recently 2015.
