Lausanne, June 13, 2009 - The FIVB Men's Club World Championship featuring eight of the world's best Volleyball clubs will take place from November 3-8 in Qatar after organizers signed a new contract to host the event with the FIVB on Saturday.

Qatar Volleyball Association President Dr. Abdula Al-Mal, Qatar Ambassador Abdula Al-Dosari, Kuwaiti FIVB Board Member Hamza Al Failakawi, and Qatar Volleyball Association General Secretary Faraj Moftah Al-Abdulla visited FIVB headquarters in Lausanne to ink the deal with FIVB 2nd Executive Vice President Theofanis Tsiokris.

"The QVA has received great support from all the Qatari authorities, especially from the Qatar National Olympic Committee, to help make this event a reality," said Dr. Al-Mal. "The Club World Championship in Doha in November will make Volleyball one of the elite sporting events organized by our country.

"We will work diligently every day to produce a world-class event that will showcase the best of what Volleyball has to offer. We thank the FIVB for this wonderful opportunity."

Qatar initially agreed to host the event last year but withdrew its offer in May citing financial difficulties. While the FIVB entered into talks with other nations interested in holding the competition, Qatari organizers continued to look for backing to support the championship.

"The FIVB is very satisfied to sign this contract with our friends at the QVA and we strongly believe that Volleyball will make massive inroads in all Arab countries thanks to this great and important event in Doha," said Tsiokris.

The FIVB Men's Club Championship is returning to the international calendar after a 17-year gap.
