The city of Mar del Plata in Argentina will host the Finals of the 2013 World League from July 17 to 21 in the Islas Malvinas competition hall, which seats 8,000 spectators.

The host city and country have an extensive history of organizing volleyball events having staged the FIVB World League Final Round in 1999, the 2002 FIVB Men’s World Championships and three FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Opens from 1998 to 2000.

In 2010 the city of Cordoba played host to the World League Finals.

Pools A and B will feature the top 12 teams in the world, while pool C will consist of six teams to complete the total of 18.

The Finals will feature the top two teams from pools A and B, the winners of pool C and the host nation. As Argentina is in Pool A and is already among the qualified teams, the best ranked team of pool A – not already qualified – will be selected.

At the Finals in Sofia in 2012, the Poland team led by coach Andrea Anastasi, picked up their first ever World League title after overcoming USA 3-0 in the final.

Cuba collected the bronze medal, their first since 2005, while hosts Bulgaria finished fourth.
