One More Day for Volleyball project to involve 12,000 people in Serbia
Belgrade, Serbia, February 19, 2016 – Ten days prior to the start of the One More Day for Volleyball project on February 29, a total of 121 Serbian cities and towns have registered for the event, which will be held in cooperation with Vip mobile Company, general sponsor of the Serbian Volleyball Federation; and supported by Ministry of Youth and Sport, the Serbian Sports Federation and the Serbian School Sports Federation.
The event is expected to have at least 12,000 participants by noon of February 29, to play and promote the sport across Serbia and the rest of Europe. The young and old, children and players from schools and club teams, as well as retired players will all play one-set matches on two, three or more courts to reach the symbolic 29 mark on this historic day for volleyball.
The schools and clubs that will send a report and photos from their respective events on February 29, before 20:00 local time, will receive five volleyballs from the national federation.
Similar events will be taking place across Europe as CEV have involved their 55 member federations in this project. Fans are invited to use the official hashtag #OneDayMore4Volleyball to go along with their posts, reporting on the organisation of their respective events and matches.
