Three Balkan Federations sign historic cooperation agreement in Sarajevo
News from the National Federations

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 19, 2018. On Monday, the Presidents of the Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Volleyball Federation of Croatia and Volleyball Federation of Montenegro signed a truly historic cooperation agreement following a meeting held at the headquarters of the National Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo.

The three National Federations will be applying for IPA (the European Union’s Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance) funds, with the intent to implement a Cross-border Cooperation and Reconciliation Project. The main objective is the education of children, coaches and referees.

This project will include a joint training process, seminars and workshops and a periodic testing of young Volleyball players. The three Federations have planned that young athletes, three times a year, will participate in tournaments and joint Volleyball camps under the supervision of FIVB licensed experts.

The President of the Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr Alija Fatić, the President of the Volleyball Federation of Montenegro, Mr Cvetko Pajković and the President of the Croatian Volleyball Federation, Mr Ante Baković signed the historic agreement in Sarajevo.



“It is my pleasure and honour that on behalf of the Croatian Volleyball Federation I can attend the signing of this historic agreement here in Sarajevo with two dear and close National Federations in order to foster our cooperation,” Mr Baković said. “I hope that this project will be successful and fruitful. As a member state of the European Union, we are ready, in every way, to take the initiative for any project that can bring something good for all three of these countries. We are also ready to open up the cooperation with other National Federations in the region since we think that borders do not exist when it comes to sport. We want the best for our young people, with a focus on the education of children and coaches, an exchange of experiences and, in the true sense we want to foster cross-border cooperation.”

“I want to convey my greetings to my dear friends from the Volleyball Federation of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and to extend best wishes from all Volleyball players in Montenegro,” Mr Pajković added. “I am glad that we are able to connect in this way and to share the same Volleyball courts. Of course, this is in order to raise the current level and status of our sport. Volleyball deserves this, and we do this especially for the good of all young and future Volleyball players. We, as federations, feel the obligation to provide the best possible conditions for dealing with this sport, but also for learning, for education and development. I hope this will be another step forward in terms of further improving the already good cooperation among these three Federations.”

“I am pleased to sign this, for all of us, extremely important agreement that will further strengthen the good cooperation among our three federations,” continued Mr Fatić. “I am truly honoured to be able to sign this agreement and I hope that the results will be visible in the near future. It is about the education of children and mass participation in the sport. We also want to educate coaches and referees. Signing the agreement is a pre-condition to submit projects benefitting from IPA funds, and the announcement of the relevant call is due to follow in April. The Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina will do nothing on its own, as the three Federations will join forces in the project and any implementation will take place in Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, thus sharing the core and goals of this agreement.”
