The FIVB joins the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in celebrating Play True Day 2023 as it reiterates its unwavering commitment to protecting clean sport and clean athletes.

The FIVB’s campaign to promote clean sport includes the continuous expansion of its efforts to ensure volleyball and beach volleyball are played on level playing field. The latest milestone in these efforts was the delegation of its global anti-doping testing programme to the International Testing Agency (ITA) for independent management from the beginning of 2023 until the end of 2025. Meanwhile, the FIVB retains results management of any potential anti-doping rule violations.

From 2013 to 2022, the FIVB conducted 4,269 tests during and outside of volleyball and beach volleyball competitions, and less than 1% of the test results were positive.
