Role of volunteers highlighted at international sports conference
News from the CEV

Paris, France, November 27, 2019. CEV Technical and Development Manager Vuk Karanovic attended earlier this week an international conference held in Paris, an activity organised in conjunction with the EYVOL (Empowering Youth Volunteers through Sport) project run by the International Olympic Truce Centre and co-funded by the European Union with their Erasmus+ programme.

Mr Karanovic joined the panel discussion on ‘Sport volunteerism in the context of major sporting events” together with representatives from a number of other international, continental and national sports organisations.

It was an opportunity to recall the leading role played by volunteers in the successful delivery of the truly historic 2019 CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals, the first such an event organised by the CEV together with their partners from the German Volleyball Federation, Volleyball Bundesliga and BERLIN Recycling Volleys.

“We reviewed the importance of the recruitment process, the pre-event training and obviously the legacy left by their participation in the Super Finals,” Mr Karanovic said. “Our colleagues from the German Volleyball Federation and Volleyball Bundesliga did an excellent job prior to the event in identifying and selecting the right people for each position. This paved the way towards the success of the event as a whole.”  

Volunteers always play a key role in the delivery of major Volleyball events – and they did so at EuroVolley as well, when the CEV and local organisers paid a touching tribute to them shortly before the medal ceremony following the gold medal match between Serbia and Slovenia held at AccorHotels Arena in Paris. The French Organising Committee paid similar tributes at their other EuroVolley venues, i.e. Montpellier and Nantes.
