St. Petersburg, Russia: The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) announced on Monday a groundbreaking sponsorship deal with Japanese car manufacturer Honda, who will become the first FIVB official partner for professional and elite volleyball and beach volleyball for the next four years. Honda, as the official partner, will sponsor major world-class events such as the Women’s Volleyball World Championship Italy 2014, the World League, the World Grand Prix, the Club World Championships and the Beach Volleyball World Championships, which will be held in Poland from July 1-7, 2013.

FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça commented: “For the first time ever, the FIVB has signed a partnership with an international brand across both disciplines. This step represents a major milestone for the FIVB and it is part of the new era for the Federation following the success of our sport at London 2012. Honda will help us to accomplish our mission to ensure excellence in all aspects of the sport.”

Over the past few years, volleyball has witnessed unprecedented growth. At London 2012, volleyball was one of the top five Olympic sports. More than 10% of all tickets sold at the Games were to volleyball matches.
