Nigeria?s male and female Beach Volleyball teams will be competing with 11 other African teams for a place in the Beach Volleyball World Cup scheduled to take place in the Netherlands in June.
The historic qualification competition is taking place in Tunis, the Tunisian capital. The 11 male teams and eight female teams are drawn in two separate pools.
The Nigerian male team side are drawn in Pool B which includes South Africa, Ghana, Morocco, Sierra Leone, and Niger, while the female side are drawn in Pool A alongside Tunisia, Morocco, and Egypt.
The top-two teams in each pool will gain automatic qualification for the World Cup. According to FIVB, the new qualification format allows for equal participation across each of the five confederations as they are all going to present the same number of teams.
