Overview

Team profile

Venezuela

Venezuela qualified for the 2015 edition of the FIVB
Volleyball World League following Germany’s withdrawal from the
competition. In 2014 - in their first appearance in the competition
after a five-year absence - they finished bottom of their Group 3 pool
with only one win against Kazakhstan. In 2003 they finished eighth with
four wins in the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Cup. In the 2015 World Cup,
they were 11th overall. Coached by Italian Vincenzo Nacci, Venezuela
were one point short of a place in the second round of the 2014 FIVB
Volleyball Men’s World Championship in Poland. Their only win came
against Cameroon.

Venezuela made their Olympic debut in Beijing
in 2008, when they completed their participation at equal-ninth. They
failed to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games after a winless Men’s
World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Japan. The strengths of Brazil
and Argentina have prevented Venezuela from winning the South American
Championships, but they have nine silver and 12 bronze medals in an
event in which they have never finished outside the top four. As a mark
of their consistency, Venezuela have now qualified on 11 occasions for
the World Championship.

Coach

Vincenzo Nacci

Vincenzo Nacci

Vincenzo Nacci took over as coach of the Venezuelan men's team in 2014, describing his role as a new adventure and an honour. Before the 2015 World League, Venezuela had not appeared in the event since 2009 when they finished last in 16th place. Nacci also guided multiple club teams at various levels in his home country of Italy, and has experience coaching youth teams. His first head coaching role came with Italian club Volley Corigliano during the 2008/09 season, earning them promotion from Serie B1 in the 2010/11 season. He later coached club side Virtus Potenza, where he also spent time as a player, but gave the role up when he took over the helm of Venezuela.
