The FIVB announced a ground-
breaking sponsorship deal with
Japanese car manufacturer Honda,
who will become the first ever FIVB
official partner for professional and
elite volleyball and beach volleyball
for the next four years.
This agreement is the first
important partnership reached
under the new leadership of
Dr. Ary S. Graça F°. Honda, as
the official partner, will sponsor
major world class events such as
the Women’s Volleyball World
Championship Italy 2014, the
World League, the World Grand
Prix, the Club World Championships
and the Beach Volleyball World
Championships.
This partnership is concluded under
the FIVB Global Partnership Strategy,
part of a wider FIVB Partnership
Programme that aims to integrate
a select few brands with exclusive
rights across both volleyball and
beach volleyball FIVB events.
FIVB President Dr. Graça
commented on the agreement:
“For the first time ever, the FIVB
has signed a partnership with an
international brand across both
disciplines. This step represents a
major milestone for the FIVB and
it is part of the new era for the
Federation following the success of
our sport at London 2012.”
