News from the National Federations

Tirana, Albania, February 23, 2017. Amateur Volleyball fans gathered on Wednesday in Tirana to launch the second edition of the Amateur Volleyball League organised by the Albanian Volleyball Federation (AVF).

“The goal is turning this sports festival into a tradition, as it once was,” said AVF's President Mr Erlind Pellumbi in his speech. There are a total of 16 teams participating in this tournament, which come from various public and private institutions.

AVF Secretary General, Mr Albens Vokopola explained the formula and innovations of this tournament, featuring mixed teams of young men and women divided by draw into two groups of eight teams each. The championship will be played in two phases, each will last for seven weeks and then the first two teams of each group will meet in the playoff final phase.

Mr Konalsi Gjoka, Chairman of the AVF Technical-Refereeing Committee emphasised that this effort and initiative this year will be extended even further. At the conclusion of this championship, the Albanian Cup Tournament for amateurs will take place, where the first four teams of each group will automatically qualify for the semi-finals and will face each other in order to win the tournament. The season will end with the Super Cup Trophy, which will put the Championship winner against the Cup winner.

Mr Pellumbi stressed in his speech that the Albanian Volleyball Federation intends to transform such activities in real competitions, in order to further grow Volleyball and bring it closer to more people and fans, and so expand even more the already large Volleyball family in Albania.
