On the stage set up in the former residence of the Habsburg dynasty, CEV President André Meyer and the Corporate Officer and General Manager of Mikasa, Daisuke Akiyama, unveiled the MVA200 CEV, the newly designed ball that will be used in all matches of the 2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League.

The MVA200 CEV is the first ball specifically designed for CEV who this way follows in the footsteps of other international sports organisations who have “customised” the features of their equipment in combination with major events or special actions.

The ball was designed jointly by CEV and its long-time partner Mikasa Corporation, which has been at the side of Europe’s Volleyball family for many years already.

This is a solid partnership and we are evidently happy with the cooperation that our Confederation and Mikasa have developed throughout the years,” the CEV President said. “We want to continue the same way knowing that Mikasa shares our ambition and strive to work for the good of Volleyball and to create innovative solutions for a bright future of our sport.

And they still do realize that the ball is not the problem? Acosta changed it in 1998 to make the game slower, so players could defend the ball and make action longer, and this? The ball is the same like blue-yellow, just another colours. Do something else to save indoor volley!!!
