The Italian women's volleyball team, coached by Julio Velasco, will participate in the Paris Olympics and the VNL 2024 Finals, scheduled in Bangkok (20-23 June).

Even before facing South Korea, in Pool 6 of the VNL, the Netherlands' 3-0 (26-24, 25-16, 25-23) victory over Canada gave the certainty of qualification for Paris, through the large lead in the world ranking, and at the same time given the pass to the final act of the Volleyball Nations League. With the matches against South Korea (today at 12.30 pm Italian time), the United States (15 June at 8.30 am Italian time) and Serbia (16 June at 8.00 am Italian time) still to be played, the Italians will try to gain the best position possible with a view to the VNL quarter-finals and to strengthen the position in the ranking in anticipation of the Olympic group draw which will take place in Bangkok on June 19th (at 1pm Italian time).
