What is ACPV? ACPV’therefore purpose is the development of qualified team Volleyball through related and related activities and in collaboration with the CEV and FIVB as well as the representation of their interests as well as its own Members. You may find more details on ACPV site .
Let’s dip into interview.
Is it true that the ACPV wishes to create a private league in volleyball?
There’s been a lot of also the intention of creating a first competition that is private for volleyball and rumors about the ACPV. I must say that any comparison with the Superleague in football is not true. I am very sorry to mention for volleyball, however now many things in volleyball Champions League are far off even from the current UEFA Football Champions League than you can imagine how much the volleyball is from the potential football Superleague (that league might not even be generated ). I am sorry to read and hear totally wrong details. That’therefore why I thank you for the possibility to describe the real mission and also the thoughts of this ACPV.
So, what would be the thoughts of this ACPV?
The mission of this ACPV is to help clubs and nightclubs develop organisationally and financially. The ACPV is protecting the rights and interests of its members through a friendly dialog with all the volleyball institutions. We consider the players and the clubs as the fundamentals of volleyball.
How can you see your next actions?
The idea is to start the favorable discussion with the FIVB and CEV about several problems that concern volleyball clubs today: recognition of the expert contracts between the expert players and nightclubs (the brokers are already recognized inside the FIVB Financial Regulations, however the clubs and players are not), ITC which is currently within an empowerment foundation, and then the things that follow from that: international calendar, insurance for those players, recompensation for those nightclubs for sending players to play the national team, etc.. Modify although No one wants to take anything from anyone, but to update the system and produce another value to everyone involved: national federations, clubs, brokers, players, the FIVB and the CEV. That’s exactly what our members request from the ACPV and always insisting to do it in a dialog that is friendly and finding a solution suitable for everyone. We have the solutions ready for the discussion.
You talked about the international issues. What about the European Champions League? Is this competition inside your agenda?
With the team of specialists, the ACPV is currently preparing the record to modernize the current top softball contest in Europe inside the CEV and the FIVB’s regulations and the rules. The idea is, besides the patrons, to add also the prospective INVESTORS (banks, investment capital or private investors) who comprehend volleyball within a fascinating sport to put money into. For your volleyball that could bring more interest and media coverage, and could bring to all more benefit than before. Especially to the nightclubs to reinvest back to rsquo & nightclubs .
What is your current work as an overall manager of this ACPV?
As a General ManagerI am working on informing people and clubs about our work and the presence and spreading the word regarding the ACPV. The answer from the people is good and the clubs may recognize the ACPV as a forum, a place for hints and debate about how best to update and change rsquo, clubs &; volleyball to another level. The institution is not just for leagues and clubs, people who have good ideas will also be welcomed. We might only be more #StrongerTogether.
