New venue and Sport Court floor in Nicaragua
MANAGUA, Nicaragua, December 1, 2016. - Nicaragua inaugurated
new Volleyball venue and Sport Court floor donated by NORCECA on
the occasion of the AFECAVOL Women’s FIVB World Championship
Bertha Cuadra President of Nicaragua’s Volleyball National
Federation FNVB was very pleased during the inaugural event at
the Volleyball Gymnasium of Nicaragua’s Sports Institute IND, as
well as the donation of a Sport Court floor donated by NORCECA.
“Without the support of our government authorities and of
NORCECA with their development plan, this moment wouldn’t be
possible. Nicaragua now has its own volleyball venue, which
contributes to our hard work towards the growth of this
beautiful sport which is my priority” indicated Cuadra.
This was the perfect occasion to speed up the construction of
the IND venue, which will be destined to play volleyball
exclusively and with the new Sport Court floor brought thru
NORCECA’s development plan created in 2009 for category I and II
Cuadra added “this important moment for volleyball is possible
thanks to the efforts of Daniel Ortega President of Nicaragua
and Marlon Torres Director of Nicaragua’s Sports Institute”. She
also appreciated the countless working hours of Cristobal Marte
Hoffiz FIVB First Vice-President and NORCECA President, as well
as Marta Centeno AFECAVOL President.
