"The World Para Volley organizers and the Iran Sports Federation for the Disabled, are expecting at least eight teams to participate in the competition," World Para Volley President Barry Couzner told Tehran Times.

"Given Iran's recent men's Gold Medal at the Rio Paralympic Games and the exceptionally strong domestic competition, it is expected that the Iran teams will perform extremely well," he added.

"With an ancient history, a reputation for handicrafts, and designation as a World Heritage Site, the beautiful city of Tabriz was jointly chosen by the Organizer and World ParaVolley," Couzner stated.

Gostaresh Foolad Tabriz will represent Iran in the competition.

Iranian teams have won four times in the past four editions.

Zob Ahan Isfahan claimed title three times and Pegah Tehran won once.

Note: World ParaVolley, formerly the World Organization Volleyball for Disabled (WOVD), is an international organization that is for people with physical disabilities. It is affiliated with the International Paralympic Committee(IPC).
