World champions USA and fierce rivals China will fight it out in Pool B while hosts Japan have been drawn in a powerhouse Pool A ahead of next month’s FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup.

USA and China are scheduled to meet in a re-match of last year’s World Championship final on their third fixtures of the first round.

The other Pool B teams are Korea, Serbia, with matches to be played in Matsumoto, Okayama and Komaki.

Dominican Republic, Russia, Argentina, Kenya and Cuba join Japan in Pool A.

The World Cup will be played from August 22 – September 6 and features 12 teams.

There are 30 matches in the first round to be played over five days in two pools of six teams.

In the second and third rounds teams play the other teams they had not previously played, over six days and 36 matches.

At the completion of the competition the medals go to the top three teams, with the top two earning a place at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.
