Team profile

Netherlands

The Netherlands have been on a roll since winning a bronze at the 2015 FIVB World Grand Prix in Bangkok and capping that with a silver at the 2015 European Championship. This was followed by an incredible fourth-place finish at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and another silver at the 2017 European Championship. That was their best Olympic result in three appearances after sixth in Barcelona 1992 and fifth in Atlanta 1996.
The trend continued with a 5th place in the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League last year, followed up by a fourth place at the 2018 FIVB World Championship after they lost to China 3-0 in the bronze medal match. Their previous best in a total of 14 tries at the 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 silver in 1991, 2009, 2015 and 2017.
The Netherlands had competed in the 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.
The Netherlands are now gearing up towards to the 2022 FIVB World Championship, which they will jointly host with Poland.
