The FIVB Women's Club World Championship is just around the corner, and volleyball queens from all over the globe have been arriving in the country since Thursday.

Not only will the teams treat local fans of an Olympic-like level of competition at the Mall of Asia Arena from October 18 to 23, but will also give the latter something to feast their eyes on.

Volleyball fans have been going crazy over their idols, and for the non-believers saying that the sport is only for women, men, you might want to reconsider.
