Men Volleyball World Cup 1973 has to be played in Czechoslovakia - Cancelled
The Tournament was not played because a political disput between Czechoslovakia and North Korea. In the middle of August 1973, Czechoslovakia as Host did not accept the inscrition of North Korea 1 day after the term. FIVB accepted the late finish of Asian Championship as a reason for this delay. Altough Czechoslovakia did not agree with this, so the Championship was cancelled. There was not enough time to find a new Host. In September 1973 in Czechoslovakia was played an International Friendship Tournament with the main teams qualified for the World Cup.
