At PyeongChang 2018, Nigeria proved to the world that although it doesn’t have snow, our athletes can still compete in the Winter Olympics. Now, the country is set to make a similar statement by participating in the 2019 Snow Volleyball World Tour in Argentina.

The competition, which is organized by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), will see teams from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, the United States and more take part in both men and women events.

Although Nigeria is ranked at 93 and 85 on the last FIVB senior world rankings for men and women, officials of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) are positive the athletes will make a meaningful impact in Argentina, just as they did at the World Beach Volleyball Championships in Germany.

The competition is also part of NBVF’s plans to make the game of volleyball more popular in Nigeria. New Telegraph quotes the president of NVBF, Musa Nimrod, saying:

“Volleyball is one of the greatest known unifying factors among our peoples across different boundaries, and success at the tour will help to further solidify our unity in the federation and country at large.”

Cameroon will join Nigeria in representing Africa at the tour.
