Parallel attractions uplift FIVB Men's Club World Championship in Brazil


Fans are able to portrait themselves with the many cups earned by Sada Cruzeiro in recent years

Belo Horizonte, Brazil, May 7, 2014 - It's not only about volleyball at FIVB Men's Club World Championship in Belo Horizonte. In order to prepare a special treat for the fans from all over the globe, Mineirinho Arena has been adapted for the tournament with a leisure area that provides another highlight to this world-class competition.

Everything is there for the audience as they enter the hall. Several stands with local food and drinks are settled one after another, all of them ready to demonstrate why "mineiro" -from Minas Gerais- food is one of Brazil's best.

Another very interesting place, especially for local fans, is the area mounted by home team Sada Cruzeiro with all the trophies earned by the team in the past years. Of course, the cup acquired at 2013 FIVB Men's Club World Championship is the main star of the display, alongside with the ones won at the Brazilian Superliga, the South American Championship and other local competitions.

Local government also seized this unique opportunity brought by the Club World Championship, planting stands with touristic information and introducing all of the city's benefits, as the tournament acts as a window to show Belo Horizonte to the entire world. 

South American Confederation President and FIVB Executive Vice-President Rafael Lloreda Currea, who performs as FIVB Control Committee President in Belo Horizonte, underlined this feature of the tournament: “A different concept is being applied on the organization of this World Championship, with a showroom outside the arena, presenting an important part of the local culture. We are very pleased with what we have seen here.”
