With 28 teams in the running for the 2014 World League title, the Intercontinental Round calendar for this year’s tournament contains a packed schedule of matches beginning the weekend of May 23 to 25.

Nine time World League winners Brazil will begin their bid for this year’s World League title on the first weekend of pool play when they take on last year’s bronze medallists, Italy.
