The contract for the 2011 Men's Senior European Championships was officially signed today in Prague


Luxembourg/Prague, January 19, 2009. CEV President André Meyer traveled yesterday to Prague in order to attend the ceremony for the official signature of the contract related to the organization of the 2011 Men’s Senior European Championships in the Czech Republic and in Austria. The Championships were awarded to this joint bid at the last CEV General Assembly in Madrid, this past September, with matches set to be played in Prague and Liberec (Czech Republic), with Vienna and Innsbruck as competition venues for the Austrian side. Vienna will host the final stages of the Championships, semifinals included.
The ceremony was staged at the Town Hall of the Czech capital with the participation of the Lord Mayor of Prague, Dr. Pavel Bém, along with CEV Vice President Dr. Jan Hronek, Mr. Peter Kleinmann and Mr. Antonin Lebl, President of the Austrian and the Czech Volleyball Federation respectively.
Tonight a special concert, with the support of the European Volleyball Confederation, will be organized in Prague in memoriam of Jan Palach, a young student who died after setting himself on fire in Wenceslas Square on January 16, 1969, in protest against the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia that dates back to August 1968. The concert will star the Orchestra of the Czech National Army along with pianist Francois Glorieux and solo singer Richard Pachman. The latter already performed a similar concert, organized with the support of the Czech Embassy in the Grand Duchy, here in Luxembourg last Thursday, always in order to recall the memory of this young guy who somehow paved the way for the return to democracy that followed a couple of decades later.
