May 24, 2018

Schedule and Live Scoring

Long Beach State’s TJ DeFalco and Kyle Ensing are set to open the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) with the U.S. Men’s National Team, which is ranked No. 2 in the world, on Friday, May 25 at 1 a.m. (PT) in Ningbo, China.

The current Beach duo will be joined by former Long Beach State All-American Dustin Watten on the 14-man travel roster as they compete this summer.

The VNL format is similar to the format for FIVB World League as three teams travel to a different location each weekend and play a round robin, then move on to the next country for five straight weekends.

The United States will travel from China to Brazil to Canada, to Hoffman Estates, Ill., to Italy.
