News from the National Federations

Helsinki, Finland, November 11, 2015. Tuomas Sammelvuo will continue in his job as the head coach of the Finnish men’s national team. Sammelvuo and the Finnish Volleyball Federation have indeed extended their cooperation for another four years (2017-2020).

Sammelvuo’s current contract includes the year 2016 and the latest agreement starts therefore with the 2017 season. Its clauses include a 2+2 years cooperation between him and Finnish Volleyball’s governing body.

By announcing the extension of their cooperation well in advance the Finnish Volleyball Federation wanted to make sure that Sammelvuo will continue his persistent, systematic and successful work as the head coach of their men’s national team. The Federation is also happy that the future of the country’s top Volleyball players is in the hands of a Finnish coach.

According to the new contract Sammelvuo has also the possibility to train a club team during the national team’s off season starting from autumn 2016.

Sammelvuo was appointed as the head coach of the Finnish national team in early 2013 and he started his work a couple of months later. He has been at the helm of the national team at the 2013 and 2015 European Championships, as well as at last year’s World Championship in Poland and for three consecutive editions (2013-2015) of the FIVB Volleyball World League.

The former Volleyball star was nominated as Coach of the Year 2014 in Finland and the Volleyball national team got the award as the Team of the Year 2014, after the ‘Suomis’ claimed their best result ever at the FIVB World Championship by finishing in ninth place at the event held in Poland.
