Cagliari, Italy, October 31, 2014 – The plans and budget for a new Hall of Fame at the FIVB Headquarters were approved on the opening day of the 34th FIVB World Congress in Cagliari, Italy on Friday.

The proposals included many operational matters but focused on the proposed underground extension to Château Les Tourelles, the official headquarters of the sport's governing body. A business plan will also now be prepared for the new Hall of Fame, which could also devise a scheme for joint tickets sales with the Olympic Museum which is just a few hundred metres from the site.
