Polish volleyball players are just one step away from winning a ticket to the Olympic Games. They need one win to secure promotion. The Poland-Netherlands match was broadcast on Pulsat Sport and Pulsat Box Go.
The qualifying tournament is considered the final chord of the national team’s season for this year. The Poles were included in the group that plays its matches in distant China. Volleyball players unanimously confirmed that fatigue at this stage is enormous and that changing the time zone does not help optimal regeneration. Despite the difficulties, Nikola Grbic’s players are doing their job.

They have already played five matches, winning all of them. There are still two games remaining, but they need one win to secure their ticket to Paris. The first chance will be on Saturday, when the Reds and Whites will face lower-ranked Netherlands, which, despite beating China 3-2 on Friday, have no chance of qualifying. On Saturday, promotion could also be decided by the winner of the clash between Canada and Belgium, two teams that currently occupy second and third places in the table, respectively.
The Poles will start the match against the Netherlands on Saturday at 10 am Polish time. The last time the two teams met was recently, on September 1st. During the European Championships, Grbic’s volleyball players defeated their opponents 3:1. Previously, the Poles and the Dutch faced each other in the Nations League – in June this year. It also turns out that white and red were better then.
The Poland-Netherlands match was broadcast on Pulsat Sport and Pulsat Box Go. Starts at 9:50. The pre-game studio will begin approximately 9:00.
