Overview

Team profile

Mexico

Mexico debuted in the 2014 edition of the FIVB Volleyball World League and finished joint-fifth in Group 3. Their opening round of matches were held in Mexico City and it was there that they were able to secure the two wins, against Turkey and Tunisia, that secured them third place in Pool F. In 2015, however, Mexico failed to win a single match. At the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship in Poland, Mexico finished fifth in their first round pool with their solitary win coming against Egypt.

Long in the shadow of regional powerhouses the United States and Cuba, and to a lesser extent Canada, Mexico's international record stretches back to 1955 when they took the silver medal at the Pan American Games in Mexico City. They won bronze in the 1959 and 1975 editions of the competition. They have also won three silver medals and two bronzes at the NORCECA Championship. Mexico have had five appearances at the World Championship over the years, with 10th place in 1974 being their best result, but have participated only twice since 1982. They won the Men’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Mexico City to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
