Daisuke Akiyama, led the unveiling of the MVA200 CEV ball, the newly designed
ball that will be used in all matches of the 2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball
Champions League on Friday night.
The European volleyball family were present
in the historic moment at the Hofburg Palace, the former residence of the
Hadsburg Dynasty in Vienna, Austria.
The launch is another successful occasion
by the CEV following last year’s campaign “Fair Play Volleyball Way” held
during the European Volleyball Gala.
The MVA200 CEV is the first ball specifically designed for CEV, in the way of
following the footsteps of other international sports organisations to

the same way knowing that Mikasa shares our ambition and strive to work for the
good of volleyball and to create innovative solutions for a bright future of
