Teamwork and increased participation in CEV competitions emphasised at ESOC
News from the CEV

Luxembourg, March 1, 2019. The European Sports Organising Commission (ESOC) had their annual plenary meeting earlier this week at the ‘Home of European Volleyball’ in Luxembourg. The ESOC members had a productive exchange of views and emphasised the necessity to work on the delivery of an event experience at all national team competitions, thus following the strategic vision set by the CEV leadership.

The ESOC members agreed that there is room for improvement in order to increase attendance at CEV competitions – and in order to achieve this goal, the CEV and the local organisers should work together on the delivery of an event that goes beyond the actual matches, with a focus on entertainment and fan engagement.

With regard to the delivery of national team competitions, the Sports Organising Commission emphasised the important role of Zonal Associations, especially since these are now in charge of the first round of qualifiers for as many as four age group European Championships (U16 and U17 Women, U17 and U18 Men). The Zonal Associations and the CEV are joining forces in order to grow the stars of tomorrow, especially by providing young players with more opportunities to play and improve their skills.

Moreover, much focus lies on increased participation in CEV competitions, with the qualifiers for CEV EuroVolley 2019 standing out as a benchmark, as more than 40 National Federations registered for participation in the exciting qualification featuring six rounds of home and away matches held in August 2018 and in January of this year.

Finally, ESOC are currently studying and discussing ideas that could help promote fair play at CEV national team competitions in order to capitalise on one of the main assets of the sport.
