Return of the #VabochanChallenge


Hiroshima, Japan, September 12, 2015 – The #VabochanChallenge is back for the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Cup while the winner of the women’s edition of the tournament has also been announced.

It was a tie in the Women’s World Cup #VabochanChallenge, with four players earning four Vabochans in total over the tournament. But only one winner could be picked so congratulations to @cherpauibnz who named Brankica Mihajlovic of Serbia as his pick.

With the men’s tournament nearing the end of round one, why not let us know who you think will win the most Vabochans for Most Impressive player over the course of the tournament. Use the hashtag #VabochanChallenge and #FIVBMWCup and we’ll pick one correct fan at random to win a cuddly version of the mascot signed by the player with the most Vabochans.

At the moment Poland's Bartosz Kurek and home star Masahiro Yanagida lead the standings with two. But there is still a long way to go.

Send us your thoughts before 16:00 GMT on September 22 for your chance to win.

By entering, fans agree to take part in the #VabochanChallenge contest. Our winner will be picked at random. The winner will receive a toy Vabochan signed by the player named Most Impressive in the most matches. The contest winner will be announced no later than September 28 2015. To receive the award, all winners must be contactable via Twitter.
