Japanese FIVB Heroes are finally back on court!

This weekend, on the 7th and the 9th of September club-colleagues Tatsuya Fukuzawa and Kunihiro Shimizu will try to defend their spot in the World League 2013.

Team Japan finished 15th out of the 16 teams participating in the World League 2012, which means they have to go through the second Qualification Round to confirm their participation in the next edition, as does team Portugal.

Fukuzawa and Shimizu will face Iran, the winner of the 1st Round, and one of the best Middle Eastern teams. They proved strong at the Olympic Qualifier in Tokyo, when they were just one point away from booking tickets to London. By the way, Japan and Iran last met at that very Qualifier and Julio Velasco’s team beat the hosts 0-3.

Will the Japanese FIVB Heroes get their revenge on the Iranians or will they miss out at the World League 2013? Find out in just a few days on FIVBheroes.com!
