It is the role of the Federation to identify, nurture and develop talent, promote volleyball, oversee volleyball activities in schools, colleges and other institutions, develop technical personnel (coaches and referees), organize volleyball competitions in the country and prepare different categories of national volleyball teams – youth, junior and senior players –  and enter them for relevant competitions.

 

 

 

2022 FIVB WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP CONCEPT LAUNCHED IN THE NETHERLANDS

 

 

 

Arnhem, Netherlands, January 31, 2019 –

FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça joined the National Volleyball Federation of Netherlands (NEVOBO) and senior Dutch government sports officials today to present the concept for the 2022 FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship.

After the Netherlands and Poland were announced as hosts of the prestigious FIVB event last month, the FIVB President was delighted to talk to Dutch media and sponsors about his vision for the event. He was joined by the FIVB 2nd Executive Vice-President and CEV President, Aleksandar Boricic, as well as representatives from Dutch sports organisations and the host cities of Arnhem, Apeldoorn and Rotterdam.
 
2022 will be the first time that the Netherlands hosts the FIVB Volleyball World Championship. The country has already proved its great hosting credentials when it staged the incredible FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships in 2015. 

Speaking at the concept launch, the FIVB President said:
 
“The Netherlands is a country full of initiative, full of intelligence and innovation – that’s what we are also aiming for every day at the FIVB. The 2015 Beach Volleyball World Championship was a completely different and extraordinary project, successfully realised by NEVOBO. And now, I am very proud to work with the Netherlands again as they co-host this hugely prestigious volleyball event alongside Poland.
 
“The proposal we received from NEVOBO in partnership with TIG was very creative; it captured our imagination. We believe that the event will raise the awareness of volleyball in the Netherlands and inspire future generations to engage with the sport. I have no doubt that the 2022 FIVB Women’s World Championship is going to be a great event for both the athletes and the fans.”


The project, presented by NEVOBO, will see the first round being held in the province of Gelderland, at the GelreDome football stadium in the city of Arnhem.  24 world-class nations will be hosted across 24 municipalities of Gelderland, ensuring that the whole province becomes a true celebration of volleyball.

 

Later rounds will be staged in Rotterdam and Apeldoorn, as well as in Poland. There is also still potential for other European countries to host some fixtures, if the proposal is in the best interests of volleyball. The finals will be held at the GelreDome. The event will include various social initiatives, such as promoting healthy eating. The event promises to take volleyball throughout the cities and regions of the Netherlands, creating an infectious volleyball culture.


As part of the event, the FIVB President officially handed over organisational control of the FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship to NEVOBO President Peter Sprenger. Dutch and Polish organising committees will now focus their attention on creating an unforgettable Women’s World Championship for both athletes and fans alike.

National Women's volleyball team Malkia Strikers edged out their East African rivals Rwanda in straight sets 3-0(25-10, 25-17, 25-10) as the 2019 all African games Zone 5 qualifiers served off at Lugogo indoor arena in Kampala, Uganda. Kenya is seeking the sole ticket to the Morocco bound games which will give them a chance to defend the title they won four years ago in Congo Brazzaville.

Head Coach Japheth Munala paraded a formidable starting line up that comprised setter Wacu, opposite player Makuto, Middle blockers Wisa and Atuka, outside hitters Murambi ans Captain Moim, and Libero player Kundu. The team established an early lead from the onset of the set, 8-2 heading into the first technical time out before they extended it further to 16-5 as the match progressed. Impressive fighting spirit and individual perfomances propelled theteam to bag the fisrt set 25-10.

Coach Munala retained the starting line up that ended the first set as Kenya stormed into an early lead 8-3. The Rwandese  side however put up a spirited fight in the second set despite trailing the 9 times African Champions from the start of the start. Their resistance did not pay off eventually as they went down 17-25 in the second set.

With a 2-0 sets advantage, Kenya began the third set on a high leading 13-3 before Coach Munala shuffled his squad bringing in Africa's best attacker this year, Chepchumba in place of Murambi, middle blocker Chebet for Atuka and setter Wanja for Wacu. The substitutions paid off as Malkia Strikers took the third set 25-10.

Coach Ramdoo was happy that the team played very well in their first match and he looks forward to help the team improve on a few areas as they get ready to face Ethiopia. “So far so good, its our first match of the all African games qualifiers and we played very well especially the back court and attack which worked very well for us, our services were fantastic and that made us win easily.” Said Coach Munala.

Kenya will play Ethiopia in their second match on Monday, 20th of May, 2019 at 1800 hours Kenyan time.
