FIVB President Dr Ary S Graça F° said:

“Volleyball Empowerment is a revolutionary development programme in the world of sport where we support national teams, athletes and National Federations to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. In the Western Asia Zone, the FIVB has approved a total of 14 projects from 2017 to 2020, out of 14 applications totalling more than 225,000 USD. This is a 100% approval rating.”

The FIVB has also presented opportunities for the National Federations of the Asia Western Zone to host events, including the newly created Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour, and to receive additional support via Volleyball Empowerment and Olympic Solidarity. This additional support will increase the level of the men’s and women’s national teams in volleyball and beach volleyball and increase the overall popularity of the sport in the region.
