TEHRAN, Apr. 9 (Mehr News Agency) - Iran's volleyball team is set to book a berth in the upcoming Olympics in the Olympic qualification tournament, which is being held in Tokyo from May 31 to June 8. The team will take part in two warm-up games against Serbia and Egypt prior to the Japan competition.
"Serbia's volleyball team will travel to Tehran with its key players. Meanwhile, Egypt will hold a preparatory camp here with the main team as well," Volleyball Federation of Iran Chairman Mohammad Reza Davarzani said in Tehran on Wednesday.
Iran is scheduled to play Algeria in the opening match on May 31. The team will face Japan, Thailand, Argentina, Italy, South Korea, and Australia in the remaining matches.
Iran will most likely qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games if it can defeat Algeria and Japan, Davarzani added.
