Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, May 14, 2014 - On Tuesday, CEV President André Meyer welcomed Mr Essa Hamzah Ahmad, one of the Zonal Vice-Presidents of the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC), to Luxembourg City. The agenda included a review of the current activities of the European and Asian confederations.

The illustrious guest from Kuwait, who is also the Treasurer of the Asian Volleyball Confederation, was impressed with the CEV's state-of-the-art premises, which are a real home to the European volleyball family. The CEV moved to their new headquarters in February 2013.

“I was pleased with the opportunity to exchange views with our guest from Kuwait,” CEV President André Meyer said. “We share the same commitment and dedication to the cause of volleyball and beach volleyball and though there might be some cultural differences we nevertheless could easily identify a common and very solid background that unites us and our respective confederations: our passion for volleyball and our willingness to raise its profile to new heights.”

The two parties expressed their intention to work together for the good of the sport and to support activities and projects organised by both confederations. “We are all members of the same volleyball family,” CEV President André Meyer concluded, “where different visions and ideas can only help us make sure as many youngsters as possible will be mesmerized by our wonderful sport. This is our ultimate, common goal.”
