President Graça promotes innovation in Nagoya
President Graça met officials, consultants, partners and staff in Nagoya
President Graça led a debriefing where all present were encouraged to voice their thoughts on the current tournament structure and suggest initiatives and ideas to ensure the FIVB remains at the forefront of technological advancement.
“It is crucially important to the FIVB and myself that we are communicating with those on the ground at events,” President Graça said. “The officials and staff are directly affected by the changes we implement and their feedback is very valuable.
“Today we discussed the Challenge System, which both athletes and referees feel has improved the sport dramatically. But now we need new thoughts and ideas, so that our sport continues to grow.”
After the debriefing, the delegation took part in a brainstorming session and were asked to send all ideas to the President of the Coordination Commission, so that the FIVB could discuss and review any proposal at length.
The FIVB has introduced a number of changes in recent months, including the announcement of a New Volleyball League, the FIVB’s Nucleus Project and a greater emphasis on fan engagement at live events.
On Sunday, China won the Women’s World Grand Champions Cup, whilst the men’s event begins today.
