Luxembourg, December 23, 2011. The CEV Executive Committee chaired by CEV President André Meyer got together yesterday in Luxembourg for a working session that was meant to evaluate pros and cons of the year that is about to come to a close and discuss some items to additionally foster the development of Volleyball and Beach Volleyball in Europe.


CEV Executive Committee

The CEV Executive Committee proudly looked back to the past months with many nice memories to recall especially from the final rounds of the 2011 CEV Volleyball European Championship co-hosted by Austria and the Czech Republic (Men) and Serbia/Italy (Women).

Taking positives from the past season, the Executive Committee can optimistically look forward to the Olympic year that is quickly approaching and all members will be closely working together for more success to come.   

The CEV Executive Committee confirmed that Development Centers for the sport are likely to open in Europe in the near future with applications having been received from Azerbaijan, England, France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Poland and Luxembourg. The staff of the CEV headquarters will be joined starting from next February 1 by an additional employee that will be responsible for all actions and activities associated to the development of Volleyball and Beach Volleyball in Europe.

The organization of the 2012 CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship was assigned to the Netherlands for the U23 age group and to the Czech Republic for the U18 division. The venue for the U20 event is still to be determined but the CEV Executive Committee was extremely pleased to note that quite many applications were received this year from countries interested in staging such competitions.      

The 2012 calendar for Volleyball and Beach Volleyball was updated also by taking into account the decisions adopted by the FIVB Sports Events Council while the competition formula for the 2012 CEV Volleyball European League was also modified in comparison with the 2011 season, with the EXCOM opting for a series of tournaments replacing the double round robin implemented in the past few years. Additional details about the 2012 European League will be communicated after an ad-hoc meeting scheduled for January 18, 2012, but once again the winners and runner-ups of the women’s competition will qualify for the next edition of the FIVB World Grand Prix coming up in 2013.
