If there is one thing that any volleyball fan anticipates, it’s the FIVB World Championship tournament. The thrill it holds is unparalleled and the sportsperson-ship is beautiful, and the tension is always high. Dramatic saves, elegant wins, and heart-breaking losses all await the steadfast volleyball fan. Here are three things that you can do to help curb the pain of having to wait until August of next year to watch the Russia-hosted volleyball tournament of the year.

#1 Break your head out of the major league games by supporting your local teams

This can be the greatest way to make sure that your head stays in the game, and you make sure that you remain entertained and thrilled by the sport. It will also get you supporting your local community and volleyball clubs more, which will probably be much appreciated and needed due to the damage of the COVID-19 pandemic had on many local clubs and small businesses. There are many benefits to doing this, not only for yourself, but also for the young hopefuls in your area who want to make it up to the televised big leagues. 

#2 Rewatch past matches and theorize with other fans

If you have a close group of friends who all follow volleyball very closely, the chances are, they are going to have a lot of knowledge about all of the different teams and their playing styles. Rewatching games from past FIVB tournaments, as well as watching the teams play smaller games as the tournament approaches, can be a great way to make your brain think about how well your favorite team will do, compared to how well they have fared before in the tournaments. You might also be able to predict gameplay style if the team is the same as how it was last year, or you can have a good look into any new players and how good they might actually be. 

#3 Take your mind off of it completely

This might be the absolute only way to make sure that you don’t go crazy while waiting. By distracting yourself, through games such as those found on, or by falling into a new part-time obsession, you can help distract yourself from the painful truth of waiting a whole other year for your favorite tournament to come back around again. Taking your mind off of it completely might also help you concentrate on other areas of the sport too, so there are more benefits to this than might meet the eye. 

To wrap things

When it comes to waiting for August 2022 for the next FIVB tournament, you are in for the long haul. You might be wondering how you might spend your spare time, and how you can make the days go a little faster. Whether it’s bonding with other fans, helping out your local community, or just taking your mind off of it completely, there are a huge number of things that you can do to help you along with your long wait.
