Modern venue built for Lima 2019 will be the stage of the National Women’s Volleyball League, scheduled to start in November.

Moderna sede construida para Lima 2019 servirá de escenario para la Liga Nacional de Voleibol Femenino, que se inicia en noviembre próximo.

Visitors from abroad, athletes and national fans filled the grandstands each time a competition was held for the Pan American and Parapan American Games, and one of the venues that dazzled them the most was the Callao Sports Center, which reopened its doors to house the largest event in Peruvian volleyball.

The sports center, which was built entirely within the Callao Regional Village, with capacity for 6100 people and a world-class surface court, will be the stage of the XVIII National Women's Volleyball Superior League, in its highest category. As of November 16, athletes and fans will be able to enjoy the first-class facilities that were left as a legacy for national sports and Callao.

The tournament is organized by the Peruvian Volleyball Federation and will have the participation of top national and international volleyball players who will come to reinforce the Peruvian teams. Competitions start on November 16 and 17, and the next matches will take place on November 23 and 24, and on November 30 and December 1. The competition will then resume on January 18.

The clubs participating in this championship are Alianza Lima, Universidad San Martin, Circolo Sportivo Italiano, Regatas Lima, Universidad César Vallejo, Jaamsa, Deportivo Alianza, Sporting Cristal, Géminis, and Rebaza Acosta.

The Callao Sports Center housed the women’s and men’s volleyball competitions, as well as taekwondo, during the Pan American Games. During the Parapan American Games, it was venue for the sitting volleyball and Para taekwondo competitions. This modern infrastructure will offer the same top-quality conditions for upcoming competitions, such as the National Volleyball League.
