The unique trophies – with a contemporary, inspirational artistic design took months to design earlier this year – were in Brazil as part of the FIVB Trophy Tour for the upcoming FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship, which will be held in Poland from August 30 to September 21, and the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship due to take place in Italy from September 23 to October 12. The trophies were stolen at a mall parking lot near the Confederação Brasileira de Voleibol, while in transit back to Europe.
With the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship Poland 2014 beginning next week and the women’s event beginning in one month, the FIVB will start work immediately with the Swiss company that created the trophies for the replacement of both, which were originally planned to be present at next Saturday’s Men’s World Championship opening ceremony and match in Warsaw.
