Default FIVB confirms 2008 World League match schedule

The FIVB has approved the match schedule for the 2008 World League, Volleyball's flagship annual event involving the world's best Men's Volleyball players.



The 2008 edition will involve 16 National Teams playing 96 matches over six consecutive weekends in 41 cities across the globe and competing for more than USD 20 million in Prize Money.



The six Intercontinental Rounds begin the weekend of June 13-15 and end the weekend of July 18-20. The 16 participating teams are divided into four pools, with each team playing their pool opponents twice over a weekend both home and away.



The Final Round will be contested by six teams playing a total of 10 matches in Rio de Janeiro through July 23-27. The Finals will include Brazil as organizing country, the winners of each pool and a wild card chosen by the FIVB from the best second-ranked teams in the Intercontinental Rounds.



Brazil will be looking for their sixth-straight World League triumph and will warm-up for the Final Round in Pool A against France, Serbia and Venezuela, who return to the competition for the first time since 2005. If Brazil finish top of their pool, the second-ranked team will advance to the Final Round.



Another success for the Brazilians would mean they match Italy for most World League victories with eight. Italy and Brazil are the only teams to compete in all 18 editions of competition up to 2007.



Among those standing in the South American teamís way are Russia, silver medallists in 2007 and winners in 2002, and USA, who claimed bronze last year.



FIVB 2008 World League pool composition:

Pool A: Brazil (BRA), France (FRA), Serbia (SRB), Venezuela (VEN)

Pool B: Russia (RUS), Cuba (CUB), Korea (KOR), Italy (ITA)

Pool C: USA, Bulgaria (BUL), Spain (ESP), Finland (FIN)

Default Dominican De la Cruz leads Toray to Japan League Title

The Toray Arrows defeated the Denso Airybees in four sets in the Premier League women's final on Sunday, led by strong performances from national team center Erika Araki and Dominican attacker Bethania De La Cruz.

Araki and De La Cruz helped Toray take control of the match at Saitama Super Arena en route to a 25-22, 21-25, 25-19, 25-20 win and its first league title since taking over the team from Unitika, which won six top-flight crowns before being dissolved in 2000.

The multi-talented De la Cruz, member of the Dominican Republic National Team, topped all the scorers with 29 points while displaying her skills throughout the match.



Araki was named the season's Most Valuable Player while her team posted a 23-4 record.

In the fourth set, Toray trailed 11-8 before reeling off eight straight points behind hard-hitting De La Cruz and Arai's blocks.

Meanwhile, the Hisamitsu Springs defeated the Okayama Seagulls three sets to one in the match for third and fourth places.
