Record-breaking participation for youth Christmas tournament on Faroe Islands
News from the National Federations

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, December 10, 2016. 475 Volleyball matches will be played this weekend, with as many as 137 youth teams participating in the Christmas tournament organised in Tórshavn, the capital city of the Faroe Islands. The players are aged five to 18 and will be representing nine, actually all of the Volleyball clubs from the islands. The tournament is played in three sports halls at the same time and is a part of the qualification to the Faroese youth national championships.

137 represents the greatest number of teams ever participating in a tournament taking place on the Faroe Islands, according to the President of the Faroese Volleyball Association, Mr Magnus Tausen. “At this moment we have a big increase in membership, and this applies especially to players aged between six and 12. This is a development we are very happy with.”

This success has by no means been easy. In the Faroe Islands they have been working hard the last six months, with the CEV-supported project “Inspired through Flogbørn”. It is a project with focus on schools and clubs. 20 schools, which are half of the schools on the islands, and all nine Volleyball clubs from the country are involved in this recruiting and development project.

“We are very pleased with our progression and I believe that we are heading to a good future for Volleyball in the Faroe Islands. Not least based on the fact, that among teachers and parents we have seen a great willingness to help and even become coaches through the courses we have been providing. This is fundamental to the long-term success of Volleyball in the Faroe Islands,” Tausen concludes.
