CEV Executive Committee meeting in Istanbul (TUR)

In presence of its newly elected President Mr. Erol Ünal Karabiyik the Turkish Volleyball Federation had the honour of presenting the results of its new team to the CEV Executive Committee, promising a new dynamism in Turkish volleyball on the national as well as the international level. CEV President Mr. André Meyer and the Executive Committee members were pleased to receive this positive information, declaring their support for the future work of the Turkish Volleyball Federation. Following a common agreement between the CEV and the Turkish Volleyball Federation, the latter have analysed the possibility of setting up a Beach Volleyball development centre in Turkey - a sign of the new drive and collaboration between the two parties.


In their subsequent reunion the CEV Executive Committee evaluated the organisation of the European Cups’ season 2005/06 and prepared the new arrangements for the coming season, including:

· The introduction of a new ranking system valid for 2007/08

· A test year 2006/07 with 24 men’s teams and 16 women’s team participating in the Indesit European Champions’ League

· The preparation for the Drawing of Lots and following seminar from 23rf to 24th June 2006 in Vienna (AUT)

Further, it has been decided to hand out a ‘Fair Play’ award during the European Volleyball Gala in Vienna (AUT) where Europe’s ‘Best Players’ will also be honoured. The ‘Fair Play’ prize has been awarded to Marcus Nilsson from PARIS Volley. The 23-year-old Swede supported the second referee in the men’s CEV Cup semi-final against the later champion Lube MACERATA, admitting to have touched the net during a critical score at the end of the third set, which finally decided the match in the opponent’s favour.

In Beach Volleyball a new ranking system has been approved by the CEV Executive Committee which will be valid from this season onwards. The new CEV ranking system will also take into account the points gathered during international FIVB events, so that some top European players also gain the possibility to compete, respectively qualify, for European events.

A press conference on the following day concluded the Executive Committee meeting where CEV President Mr. André Meyer especially thanked Mr. Erol Ünal Karabiyik, President of the Turkish Volleyball Federation, for this successful and promising encounter.
