Novi Sad hosts volleyball exhibition

Novi Sad hosted a tournament organised by VC "Vojvodina NS Seme" and Novi Sad's volleyball school
Novi Sad, Serbia, June 27, 2014 - Novi Sad's Square of Liberty hosted a tournament organised by VC "Vojvodina NS Seme" and Novi Sad's volleyball school. A large number of spectators watched eight finalist teams from Novi Sad's Youth Boys and Girls Municipal Championship, before Serbia's men's team took centre stage for an exhibition match.

The national team also gave away t-shirts, uniforms, volleyballs, hats, and special gifts prepared in cooperation with the Vip mobile company, who are sponsors of the Volleyball Federation of Serbia. The Volleyball Federation of Serbia also used the tournament to promote its social awareness programme, called "Volleyball Connects at City Squares".

The citizens of Novi Sad enthusiastically welcomed Serbia's men's team to the Square of Liberty. Onlookers included Mr Predrag Svilar, Municipal Secretary for Youth and Sports of the City of Novi Sad, Mrs Howyda Mondy, FIVB Supervisor, Mr Simone Santi and Mr Frans Loderus, international referees, Mr. Zoran Avramovic, Marketing Director at the Volleyball Federation of Serbia, Mr Nikola Salatic, Director at VC
"Vojvodina NS Seme", and Mr Nikola Maric, Sports Director at VC "Vojvodina NS Seme".

"The event demonstrated that volleyball is really for everyone and that it connects people in the best possible way. This is great. If you see the happiness on the children's faces, your heart is filled with joy and excitement. Keep up with the good work and keep the ball flying," said Mrs Howyda Mondy, FIVB Supervisor.

"This was the best possible invitation for volleyball fans in Novi Sad to come and see the World League matches between Serbia and Bulgaria. But, the most important thing is that our national team players are always willing to participate in this kind of event, and that they are trying their best to make children happy and to let their fans interact with them. Of course, with the addition of some great gifts we prepared in cooperation with our general sponsor - Vip mobile company - I can say that this was a wonderful night," said Mr Zoran Avramovic, Marketing Director of the Volleyball Federation of Serbia.
