Revealed: the new Mikasa indoor volleyball design
The V200W features a perfectly balanced, 18-panel aerodynamic design that improves ball movement and gives players greater control. With enhanced visibility, the new indoor ball will optimise the quality of play and maximise excitement on the court.
Following the announcement, FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graça F° said:
“Mikasa has supplied equipment for the FIVB since volleyball was first included on the Olympic Programme at Tokyo’s first Olympic Games in 1964, and the V200W will be the official game ball for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
“Mikasa shares the FIVB’s vision for sporting innovation and I believe that our ongoing relationship will go from strength to strength as we move forward together.”
Mikasa President Yuji Saeki said:
“Our partnership with the FIVB has formed a fundamental relationship for our organisation for many years, and I am delighted to launch the V200W, which will be seen and used around the world.
“It is my hope that the FIVB and Mikasa will share many more future moments like this.”
