News from the CEV

Luxembourg/Zug, Switzerland, December 19, 2019. The CEV and Infront, a Wanda Sports Group company, have expanded their agreement for the media rights to Europe’s top Volleyball events in a new long-term partnership. The prolongation covers global media rights distribution for CEV’s flagship national team events including the men’s and women’s CEV EuroVolley and CEV EuroBeachVolley. It also expands to cover all club competitions including the CEV Champions League, CEV Cup and CEV Challenge Cup and all CEV Snow Volleyball events as of season 2020/21.

The decision was taken by the CEV Board of Administration meeting in Luxembourg and is due to be ratified by the CEV General Assembly on February 29, 2020.

Aleksandar Boričić, CEV President said: “Infront has been a trusted partner of the CEV for many years and expanding its role reflects the positive impact they have had on European volleyball. Having the media rights to both European club and national team competitions managed under one umbrella will help create synergies between events and ensure consistent delivery at all levels.”

Philippe Blatter, Infront President and CEO said: “Volleyball remains a hugely popular sport not only in Europe but globally. Our long-term partnership with the CEV remains a special one and – with volleyball forming part of Infront’s DNA – this extension provides us with an opportunity to strengthen this exciting sport in all its facets for fans, players and partners across Europe. We feel privileged to increase the scope and time of this partnership and continue our relationship with the volleyball family.”
