WoV BLOG: How many countries in the world play volleyball?

4339 1

Since the mission of the FIVB is to make volleyball number 1 family sport, they need to involve all countries in the world.

 

We can say that the FIVB are on the right track when we are talking about the number of countries that are playing volleyball.

There are 221 federation members in FIVB! So, it means that the volleyball is definitely a worldwide sport. It just needs a little bit more promotion and more sponsors to become even more popular in some countries.

The FIVB have five continental confederations: AVC (Asia & Australia – 65 countries), CAVB (Africa - 54), CEV (Europe - 56), CSV (South America - 12) and NORCECA (North and Central America – 35).
