Organised by the International Volleyball Association (FIVB) in 1993, the FIVB World Grand Prix is often held in the middle of the year. With a total prize award of US$1million on offer, this competition features four teams of players selected from top volleyball teams from around the world, with each stage comprising different teams. The preliminary round matches are battled out in various cities around the world. Volleyball teams scoring the highest number of points will assemble in one city to compete in the final round.
In 1994, Macao became one of the host cities of the FIVB World Grand Prix, which is jointly organised by the Sport Development Board and Volleyball Association of Macao, China. In 2001, Macao was first selected as the city for the final round of the competition. The eight strongest teams at that time – the U.S., China, Russia, Cuba, Brazil, Japan, Korea and Germany – assembled in Macao to participate in the final competition from 22nd to 26th August. The final round of the FIVB World Grand Prix will once again be hosted by Macao in 2011.
