CEV President reports on key decisions by FIVB Board
News from the CEV

Lausanne, Switzerland, April 4, 2014. The annual meeting of the FIVB Board of Administration drew to a close on Friday afternoon in Lausanne. The members – including eight from Europe – agreed on a series of measures that will help speed up the development of Volleyball and Beach Volleyball worldwide and bring the sport to the next level as wished by FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F°.

CEV President André Meyer – who is also the FIVB 2nd Executive Vice President – sums up some of the key points that were discussed in Lausanne: “It was agreed that in the future any changes to the rules of the game will be endorsed directly by the FIVB Executive Committee and Board of Administration without waiting for the next Congress. This way the necessary changes will be adopted and enter into force more quickly. It was also decided to change the procedure for the election of the FIVB President, thereby aligning it to the IOC standards. Starting from 2016, the FIVB President will be elected for a first term of eight years renewable once for four years. After 12 years, the President will have to step down and won’t be allowed to seek for an additional re-election.”

Mr. Meyer echoes another few important measures that the Board members agreed upon: “The Executive Group established by former FIVB President Jizhong Wei will be dissolved. Back to the sport, everyone agreed on the necessity to continue with its modernisation by using the latest technology available, as we have already done in Europe with the video check system or the headsets that our referees used in the Finals of the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League a couple of weeks ago. The FIVB Board wants to make sure that the sport evolves with the times and that Volleyball will get where it deserves to be on the global stage. Television, press, and social media will also play a key role in pushing Volleyball forward and build up on the success from the last years.”

The FIVB Board also discussed a proposal to revise the current administrative fees applied to international transfers. “We followed up on a recommendation by the FIVB Legal Commission. As far as Europe is concerned, we want to make sure that any changes will comply with the EU law, so this is one of the points we will have to further discuss in the near future,” Mr. Meyer says.

The measures that the Board members have agreed upon will now be passed on to the FIVB Congress whose dates and venue were confirmed earlier this week as well. The world’s Volleyball family will come together in Milan, Italy from October 30 through November 1 for a Congress that will follow the Final Rounds of the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Championship due to take place later this year in Poland and Italy for men and women respectively.
