National Cup Finals set new standards for Volleyball in Germany
News from the National Federations

Mannheim, Germany, March 1, 2016. On Sunday Germany’s Volleyball family celebrated an unforgettable party surrounded by 12,000 enthusiastic fans in Mannheim. The reason was the German Cup Final that for the first time was held in one of the most modern venues in Europe, the SAP Arena.

Fans, members of the Organising Committee, journalists and the participating teams all agreed and spoke very enthusiastically about the event. Alfons Hörmann, President of the German Olympic Sports Confederation, said: “This was a fascinating event delivering a new attendance record and a great atmosphere.” For the first time in history 12,000 fans came together to watch a Volleyball match in Germany and enjoy an unprecedented show with fireworks, cheerleaders and an event park.
 
Host broadcaster SPORT1 also recognised the potential of the event and provided five hours of live coverage for all the fans who didn’t have the chance to travel to Mannheim and be a part of the show on site. It was the longest Volleyball programme in the history of the channel. The fans at the venue and in front of the TV saw two high-quality matches with two deserved champions in DRESDNER SC and the BERLIN Recycling Volleys.
 
“The German Cup Finals reminded me of the 2014 Volleyball World Championship in Poland. It was almost too perfect for a premiere and set new standards,” said German Volleyball League President Michael Evers conveying one of the most heart-felt compliments at the end of a perfect day for Volleyball in Germany. To be continued in 2017.
