MANAGUA, Nicaragua, September 5, 2017.- Managua will host the XVII AFECAVOL U-21 Men’s Central American Championship running from September 5-10 at the IND Volleyball Venue.

 

Defending champion Guatemala has dominated the age-group competition since its creation, winning seven titles in 1981, 1992, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2015. During the fifteenth edition in 2013, El Salvador broke four year reign of Guatemala.

 

As AFECAVOL title holder, Guatemala competed in 2016 at the age-group Pan American Cup in Canada, finishing in a historic fourth place while advancing into the bronze medal match.
