Boričić – “Poland is one of the driving forces for volleyball in Europe and on global stage too”

The president of CEV Aleksandar Boričić has talked about many themes at the press conference in Krakow:



I only have very good memories from my previous stays in Poland,” the CEV President said, “especially since I spent almost one month in this country during the record-breaking men’s World Championship Poland hosted in 2014. There is no doubt that Poland is one of the driving forces for Volleyball in Europe and on the global stage as well. And yet again this weekend the organizers provided our elite competition with an amazing stage where to showcase Volleyball at its finest.”

Boričić also took the opportunity to analyse the previous six months since he became the president of CEV:

“Our approach towards the organisation of events is changing and I would like to single out what we did with our #RoadToRio action before the Olympic qualifiers played in January and the outcome of our innovative #OneDayMore4Volleyball project, with more than 50,000 people playing the game on one single day across Europe,” he said and added – We want to develop a much closer cooperation with all stakeholders, starting with clubs and National Federations, in order to support their efforts to grow the game and are committed to provide each member of our Volleyball family with opportunities to develop the sport in their respective countries. We also want to work with the FIVB to protect Europe’s leading role on the global Volleyball stage and cooperate with them to further raise the profile of our sport at all levels.”

The CEV’s president also added:

As you know, we have announced a re-shaping of the Champions League, which will be open to all national champions. We want every member of our family to have the opportunity to be part of this show whilst making sure that the requirements are adjusted, thus making the competition accessible to all those who would like to join and play,” Boričić said.
