Elwani attended the European Volleyball Congress as a guest of honor

26 September 2011

Vienna, Austria, September 24, 2011. The African Volleyball Confederation “CAVB” President Dr. Amr Elwani attended the European Volleyball Confederation “CEV” Congress held in Vienna, Austria as a guest of honor where he used the visit to strengthen the protocol between CEV and CAVB that started two years ago after André Meyer was re-elected President of CEV for another four-year term by receiving an almost unanimous mandate from the delegates representing 54 National Federations that are in attendance at the 32nd CEV General Assembly.


The CEV and CAVB signed in 2009 a protocol of cooperation between the two confederations that was reflected positively in many aspects to promote the sport in Africa.


Elwani had a meeting with Meyer to exchange their views about several topical issues and join their forces for a further promotion of Volleyball across the African continent.

Meyer and Elwani both stressed out the importance of sharing their current knowledge and trigger off a new era in the interaction among Africa and Europe for a bright and promising future of Volleyball in their respective areas of authority.


“I think the next few years will show more cooperation between Europe and Africa that will reflect positively to our sport,” Said Elwani after the end of the congress. “CEV and CAVB will also organize coaching seminars where senior European coaches and prominent officials will be invited to take part. We need also more African referees to officiate in the European championships which will reflect positively to the standard of the African referees.” He added.
