ARLINGTON, TX – December 6, 2022 – Volleyball’s flagship event returns in 2023 when Volleyball Nations League (VNL) arrives in four continents including North America with two events in the United States.

Graça F° says, “The VNL continues to wow fans across the globe with a diverse and strong line-up of hosts, and this is testament to the global popularity of our sport.
