It is confirmed that the ACPV will be present at the 2019 Play the Game Forum in Colorado Springs, USA, this autumn, after General Manager, Ivan Miljković, was confirmed amongst the keynote speakers.


Miljković will have the unique opportunity to air the ACPV’s views at the 11th Play the Game forum as one of a total 120 prestigious speakers from the sporting world, which includes the former head of the FBI investigation into the FIFA corruption scandal, Evan Norris.

The forum will take place over four days between 13 and 16 October, and the ongoing criminal investigations into prominent and powerful leaders in the sport will be one of the key issues on the forum agenda.

Other key issues that will be raised at the forum include safeguarding athletes and preventing sexual abuse in sport, as well as promoting anti-doping measures, with the departing chair of WADA’s Athlete Committee, Beckie Scott, and former WADA Director, Robert Koehler, also amongst the speakers.

Jesper Møller, reigning president of the Danish Football Association, and former member of the UEFA Committee will also be speaking from the football world, whilst from the world of skiing, Sarah Lewis, secretary general of the International Ski Federation, will be present.

I am delighted that I’vr received the invitation to speak at the 11th edition of the Play the Game forum and gratefully accepted the invitation,” ACPV General Manager, Ivan Miljković said.

It will be a fantastic opportunity for the ACPV not only to share its views with such prominent and powerful people in the sporting world but also to expand our profile and our network further”.

Play the Game’s own international director, Jens Sejer Andersen, was also thrilled to name the ACPV amongst its collection of prestigious speakers at the upcoming forum.

At this early stage of the programme planning, we are happy to offer an exciting mix of old and new names among our speakers, who are all of high quality,” the Andersen says.

120 speakers is a satisfying number that lays a solid foundation for the conference programme.”

Despite having such a high number of prominent speakers already, more people and organisations can still seize the opportunity to present an abstract at the meeting, after Play the Game set a second application deadline for Monday 20 May. Abstracts and storylines delivered beyond the deadline will be reviewed in a rolling procedure, but won’t be guaranteed a timeline for the review nor a place in the forum program.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
