Brazil is the No. 1-ranked team in the world while the U.S. is No. 2. Among the U.S. players expected to compete are 2016 Olympic medalists

Matt Anderson, Micah Christenson, Max Holt, Taylor Sander, Erik Shoji and Thomas Jaeschke, a native of Wheaton, Ill., and a star at Loyola of Chicago.

“Our matches with Brazil are always exciting,” U.S. Head Coach John Speraw said. “At that time of year, both teams should be playing some of their best volleyball heading into the FIVB Grand Champions Cup.

“We also really enjoy playing at the Sears Centre Arena. The crowds there are great and make for an incredible atmosphere.”

Both matches will be at 7:30 p.m.
