Egypt Defeat Algeria To Emerge African Men’s Volleyball Champions

Egypt have been crowned champions of the 2023 Men’s African Nations Volleyball Championship after beating Algeria in the final.

The tournament was held in Cairo, Egypt from 3 to 13 September 2023 and acted as a qualifier for the 2025 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship, with the top three teams securing a spot in the competition.

As hosts, Egypt were placed in Pool A, winning their opening game 3-0 against Burundi, before losing with the same scoreline to Algeria to take part in the Round of 15.

Double consecutive 3-0 wins over Kenya and Morocco saw Egypt clinch a spot in the semi-finals, where they beat Cameroon 3-1 to set up another clash with Algeria.

In the final, Egypt managed to avenge their group-stages defeat, and won the game 3-1 (25-22, 25-18, 20-25, 25-22) to win the title.

The title is Egypt’s ninth and their first since 2015, putting an end to Tunisia’s dominance over the past three editions.

In the third-placed playoff, Libya beat Cameroon 3-1 to clinch the bronze medal and a spot in the Volleyball Men’s World Championship.
