2022 VNL Finals: Reigning Champion Poland to Meet Iran

Reigning world champion Poland and reigning Asian continental champion Iran will meet in the 2022 Volleyball Nations league (VNL) semifinals on Thursday.

The European team, who was VNL silver medalist in 2021 and bronze medalist in 2019, finished this year’s Preliminary Phase on 10-2 and 31 points, just below leader Italy on set ratio.
