We’re LOVING IT!!!!
We could ’t even hesitate to touch the thing and get the feel of it. We love the new look and we are excited to see in about the court next year, starting.
The FIVB and Mikasa Corporation revealed the layout of this brand new “V200W” indoor Volleyball in a special ceremony tonight, followed by a celebratory dinner hosted by the FIVB and Mikasa for all delegates attending the 36th FIVB World Congress in Cancun, Mexico.
The V200W includes a perfectly balanced, 18-panel aerodynamic design that improves ball motion and gives players greater control. On the court, the brand new indoor ball will optimise the quality of play and increase excitement with visibility.
The double-dimpled microfiber surface stabilises the flight path of the ball and creates additional cushioned ball control, whilst the anti-sweat performance “Nano Balloon Silica” averts the surface of the ball by becoming slippery during intense play. The ball exceeds the FIVB’s homologation standards and passed testing protocols, carried out by top national teams and clubs over the previous six months.
The V200W will make its debut at the 2019 FIVB Volleyball World Cup and simplifies the MVA200, which was initially used at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.
Following the announcement, FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graça F stated:
“Mikasa has supplied equipment for the FIVB since Volleyball was initially included on the Olympic Programme at Tokyo’s first Olympic Games in 1964, along with the V200W is going to be the new FIVB official game ball. “Mikasa shares the FIVB’s for athletic innovation vision and I believe our continuing relationship will go from strength to strength as we move forward.
Mikasa President Yuji Saeki stated:
“Our partnership with the FIVB has formed a basic relationship for our organisation for many decades, and I am delighted to launch the V200W, which is seen and utilized across the world. “It’s my expectation that Mikasa and the FIVB will share moments in this way.
