FIVB General Director Fabio Azevedo presented Volleyball Empowerment, a revolutionary programme of support, and encouraged delegates to utilise the incredible support on offer.

“The main purpose of Volleyball Empowerment is moving our National Federations and your national teams to the level they deserve. We will have more teams participating, more victorious and more trophies,” said Fabio Azevedo.

“New and strong national teams can inspire a new generation of fans and athletes. And as a united Volleyball Family, we want our sport to be strong and we want our sport to make the world better by inspiring more and more people to take up the sport and lead healthy lifestyles.”
