The first member of the Morales women’s volleyball team led by coach Fernando Morales (42) from Puerto Rico, an American territory, has been confirmed. Last month, the Korea Volleyball Association selected Coach Morales as the captain to lead the Korean women’s volleyball team until 2026.

The Korea Volleyball Association announced on the 4th the selection list for the Korean women’s national volleyball team that will participate in the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) Volleyball Nations League (VNL) to be held in May. VNL is a competition in which 16 countries participate to determine the world’s best volleyball player. The association explained that the Performance Improvement Committee reviewed the list recommended by Coach Morales the day before (the 3rd) and selected 16 players.

The number of players who contributed to Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s combined victory in the professional volleyball women’s division in the 2023-2024 season (1st place in the regular league and victory in the championship match) was the largest at 4. Setter Kim Da-in (26), libero Kim Yeon-gyeon (31), middle blocker Lee Da-hyun (23), and outside heater Jeong Ji-yoon (23) wore the Taegeuk symbol.

Cheong Kwan-Jang players, who ranked third in the league, followed with a total of three players, including Ho-Young Jeong (23), So-Young Lee (30), and Seon-Woo Lee (22). Heungkuk Life Insurance, which finished second in the championship match, produced two people, Joo-ah Lee (24) and Da-eun Kim (23).

Other veterans named Moon Jeong-won (32, Korea Expressway Corporation), Pyo Seung-ju (32, IBK Industrial Bank of Korea), and Park Jeong-ah (31, Pepper Savings Bank) were named.

The national team will gather at the National Athletes’ Village in Jincheon, North Chungcheong Province on the 15th to begin training.

The Korean national team will travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (May 14-19), Arlington, Texas, USA (May 28-June 2), and Fukuoka, Japan (June 11-16) to play VNL preliminary matches.

In July of last year, Korea finished the VNL tournament with a loss in all 12 games for the second time in a row, following the year before. Due to a sharp decline in international competitiveness, the world ranking fell to 40th place. This is a lower ranking than Thailand (13th) and Vietnam (39th).
