Host City: Lima, Peru
Peru's capital, Lima, is located in the central part of the country, on a desert coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With a population fast approaching 9 million, Lima is the largest city in Peru and the fifth largest city in Latin America.
Once the heart of Spain's South American empire, modern Lima is a huge metropolis crammed with culture, and a history that pre-dates the Incas.
While Lima's past gives the city its unique colour, it has moved with the pace of modernity and now boasts strong industries and services. As Peru's economic powerhouse, Lima is home to around one third of the country's people.
It is also a gateway to Peru's marvels of Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the Amazon jungle.
Peru last organised an FIVB event in 1982 when Lima hosted the Women’s World Championship won by China.
Venue: Edouardo Dibos Coliseum
The Eduardo Dibós Coliseum, located in the San Borja district, is a multiple sports compound with stands capable of seating 5,000 spectators. It has become the main arena for Peru Volleyball since its inauguration in 1989 with the FIVB Volleyball Women´s Junior Championship. It has regularly hosted several continental events from all categories as well as qualification tournaments to World Championships and Olympic Games.
