2016 is a special year not only because of the Rio Olympics where once again the world’s sports family will come together and celebrate humanity, but also because of the bonus of one extra day to enjoy life and do the things we love the most.
The 29th of February only comes once in four years and the CEV would like to make the day really count this year by engaging as many people as possible in Volleyball all over Europe.
Our #OneDayMore4Volleyball campaign has been designed to spread a real Volleyball fever across the whole of Europe, by bringing people together from all the different paths of life, professional and non-professional, young and old, in a spirit of friendship and fair play. We are truly hoping that with your help we can turn that day into a spectacular and unforgettable experience for everybody involved, making it yet another milestone in the promotion and development of our beloved sport.
We are also hoping to reach the record of most Volleyball matches played all over Europe in one day and to raise the awareness of the sport across all media channels, thereby putting Volleyball in the spotlight as the first international sport to take up such a challenge. This action is meant to showcase Volleyball as a sport for absolutely everyone, regardless of their physical abilities, technical skills, age, familiarity with Volleyball, etc. We would like to see school children, teenagers, students, people from different sectors of the economy, etc. interact with athletes from our Clubs, Regional Associations, National teams, etc., in what could turn out to be yet another milestone in the Volleyball history of Europe.
Please refer to the enclosed key facts for further information. We remain at your disposal for any assistance or clarification you may require and look forward to joining forces with you and thousands of Volleyballers to make the 29th of February 2016 a truly remarkable day for the European Volleyball Family!
Take that extra leap and be part of our #OneDayMore4Volleyball campaign.
Happy leap year, everyone!
