Overview

Team profile

Iran

Iran have a 30-year experience in participating and holding youth and junior tournaments. The national federation implemented this programme to fill the gap between the junior and senior age groups so that the U23 athletes can reach an acceptable technical preparation level of play when they reach the senior team. This became an effective tool for the coaches and players to evaluate themselves against Asian and world counterparts. Iran finished fifth in the last FIVB Volleyball Men’s U23 World Championship. As the Asian champions, they have earned another qualification ticket to the tournament, under coach Peyman Akbari.
