Overview

Team profile

Belgium

Belgium began competing consistently at continental level in the 1960s, making their European Championship debut in 1967 and appearing three more times over the next 20 years. In 2007 a seventh-place finish paved the way for greater things and in 2013 Belgium had a breakthrough year when they claimed a silver medal in the European League. Two months later they travelled to the European Championship where they defeated Serbia for the bronze medal.
After two decades away from the international stage, Belgium have lately been establishing themselves as a force once again. They made their FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix debut in 2014.
Belgium have also competed at three World Championships. In their latest appearance they finished 11th in 2014 after a 36-year absence.
They finished with a 4-11 record and ranked 13th in the inaugural Volleyball Nations League last year.
