Volleyball leading the charge for gender equality
News from the CEV

Luxembourg, March 8, 2020. Around the world, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Snow Volleyball athletes act as role models to the next generation of players and fans. One of the factors that stands Volleyball apart from other sports is the gender balance demonstrated throughout the FIVB’s and CEV’s events.

The FIVB’s vision - shared by the CEV and its leadership - is to be the world’s number one family sport, inspiring young boys and girls to take part in Volleyball from an early age and adopt the values of the sport on and off the court. Therefore, ensuring Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Snow Volleyball promote both men’s and women’s events equally has been a consistent part of the overall strategy.

Fundamentally, the rules of the game are equal for both men’s and women’s competitions, providing athletes the same opportunities to showcase their skill and athleticism in front of thousands of fans inside the stadium, as well as millions more watching around the world. Importantly, women’s Volleyball events often receive similar viewing figures as the men’s tournaments, and it was found that 59% of Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Snow Volleyball fans are interested in both the men’s and women’s games, which reinforces the fact that elite national and club teams produce world class entertainment for their passionate fans.

In addition, the FIVB and CEV are committed to creating a level playing field and offer equal prize money for men’s and women’s events at all their major competitions.

The historic CEV Champions League Volley Super Finals held last year in Berlin represent a true milestone to this extent with the top men’s and women’s teams in Europe competing at the very same venue for the most coveted title in club Volleyball as well as for the same share of the record-breaking prize money at stake. This concept has truly revolutionised the Volleyball world, receiving only positive reviews from athletes, fans and media alike and everyone is already looking forward to the second edition of the event due to take place on May 16 in Berlin.

“We can proudly say that gender equality is reality at the CEV,” CEV President Aleksandar Boričić said. “Last year’s Super Finals have gone down in sports history to this extent, sending out a truly powerful message, with the top male and female players in the world standing side by side while celebrating their success. Moreover, the unprecedented, equal success of EuroVolley 2019 Men and Women across as many as eight host countries is another example of how European Volleyball rightfully is synonymous with the pursuit of gender equality.”
