Beginning of each year in the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) is reserved for Committee meetings. This week, members of TV and New Media Commission as well as Technical Commission and Coaching Commission held their separate meetings with the presence of FIVB President Ari Graça and CEV (European Volleyball Confederation) President Aleksandar Boričić.

Mutual decision was that LED net, which was successfully used in previous two years, will be still used in the matches of the FIVB World League’s and FIVB World Grand Prix’s Group 1 and at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.

On the other hand, importance of using video check system and shorter duration of matches were analyzed at the meetings of TV and New Media Commission as two strategic goals in 2016.

It was announced that the official video check system will be presented on FIVB’s competitions. Also, for the first time ever, the system will be used at the Olympics – at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio!

Joint conclusion of the meeting was that matches shouldn’t last longer than one hour and 50 minutes so that TV stations could create two-hour volleyball programmes. Time for serve preparation of players should be shortened and improvements in using video check should be introduced, too.

The FIVB has also opened the process of candidacy for hosting the 2016 Men’s World Club Championship.
