Faroese Volleyball Association President named Ambassador of the Year by Tourist Board
News from the National Federations

Torshavn, Faroe Islands, April 5, 2019. Every year the Tourist Board ‘Visit Faroe Islands’ names an ‘Ambassador of the Year’, an individual who has helped shed light on the Faroe Islands by drawing visitors to the country. On Thursday, the organisation announced that Mr Magnus Tausen, President of the Faroese Volleyball Association, has received this distinction for the year 2019.

In their reasoning for naming Magnus Tausen, Visit Faroe Islands said that the Faroese Volleyball Association has organised for several years major international tournaments in the Faroe Islands, for example the U20 Men’s Small Countries Division Championship last year, while in January 2019 they hosted the NEVZA qualifier for the 2019 U16 Women’s European Championship.

“Magnus Tausen is a truly compassionate activist for Volleyball in the Faroes Islands,” the statement read and continued: “Together with Niclas Joensen, he has developed the sport on all levels from local kids Volleyball to international competitions at different age-groups. This way he has developed the sport in every aspect, and international competitions are providing the Faroese players with inspiration and challenges to lift the level of Volleyball even more.”
