The 2018 FIVB Volleyball World Championship was the 19th staging of the competition, contested by the national teams of the members of the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), the sport’s global governing body.
The final tournament was held in Italy and Bulgaria from 9 to 30 September 2018 and, for the first time, it was jointly-hosted by more than one country. The final six was hosted by Italy at the Pala Alpitour in Turin. 🇮🇹
Poland 🇵🇱 defended their world title, defeating the reigning olympic champions Brazil 🇧🇷 in straight sets at a repeat of the 2014 final. This was Poland’s third title overall, and the third time in the last four editions of the World Championship that Brazil and Poland contested the final. This was also the fifth straight World Championship with Brazil reaching at least the final.
United States 🇺🇸 won the 3rd place match, defeating Serbia 🇷🇸  in four sets, and Bartosz Kurek from Poland was elected the MVP of the competition.
The first round match between Russia 🇷🇺 and Tunisia 🇹🇳 set the new all-time lowest-scoring record in a World Championship set since the new volleyball scoring rules were adopted, with Russia winning the second set by 25:6. The previous record was a 25:8 achieved by United States against Puerto Rico during the 2014 edition!
