The 18-page report details significant developments in volleyball and beach volleyball over the last ten months, examines the FIVB's initiatives to bring the game to an ever wider audience and reviews a selection of FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F°'s meetings with key actors in the world of sport and beyond.

The latest edition of the report includes accounts of President Graça's meetings with the highest governmental and sporting representatives in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as part of talks on how best to promote volleyball in the region. It also reviews the President's visit to the SportAccord Convention in Belek, Turkey, where discussions with International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach provided the perfect opportunity to present the latest developments in volleyball and how volleyball can continue to benefit the Olympic Movement.

Fruitful discussions were also held at the International Volleyball Federation's headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, which hosted a meeting of the FIVB Board of Administrators in April. An important meeting with beach volleyball promoters was also held in June to present the organisation's vision for the future of the sport.

Looking ahead to events later this year, President Graça is confident that both the Men's World Championships in Poland and the Women's World Championships in Italy will be memorable events for players and fans. A number of competitions have also been enhanced this year. Most notably perhaps, the World League and World Grand Prix competitions, which have gone from 18 to 28 participating teams this year. The Club World Championships and U23 World Championships in Myslowice are two more examples of successful competitions this year and are early indicators that changes afoot are producing positive results.

Finally, the report also looks at the important work the FIVB is doing in collaboration with the Continental Confederations, at projects in different countries across the world and at some of the key milestones in the months ahead. Click here to read the report now.
