Castro Verdugo has plenty experience as organizer


Anaheim, USA, September 25, 2012 – The cities of Tijuana and Mexicali in the State of Baja California once again will host an age-group FIVB World Championship next year and the organizing committee made an updated detailed report about the works currently in progress.


The Organizing Committee of the FIVB Boy’s Youth World Championship will be chaired by Saul Castro Verdugo, general director of the Baja California Sport and Physical Culture Institute, who was selected as member of the FIVB Executive Committee at the end of the 33rd World Congress of the institution.


A very attractive brochure, whose content includes the lodging and transportation for the 20 participating teams and the FIVB officials, was distributed during the three-day meeting of more than 200 National Federations affiliated.


Castro Verdugo was also the president of the Organizing Committee of the 2007 Boy’s Youth World Championship, the 2007 Girl’s Youth World Championship and the 2009 Women’s Junior World Championship. All those events surpassed the FIVB requirements and confirmed the reputation of the organizers as high quality managers.


“We have organized many international volleyball events, like Pan American Cups and NORCECA Continental Championships as well as several world events in other disciplines like diving and taekwondo,” Castro Verdugo explained. “So the experience is there with a group of well trained people in the different areas to secure the smooth running of the event.”


Like in the previous world events, the competition venues will be the Multi-Sports Gymnasium in Tijuana and the State Auditorium in Mexicali. The hotels in Tijuana will be Gran Tijuana and Fiesta Inn while in Mexicali will be Araiza and Lucerna.


“Baja California waits for all of you with open arms to once again offer the volleyball family our traditional hospitality,” Castro Verdugo Said.


Several representatives of the Organizing Committee made the trip to Anaheim and took the opportunity to distribute t-shirts and other promotional items. The group included Alberto Arreola, president of the Baja California Volleyball Association, and Jorge Almada, director or public relations and promotions.


The other Junior FIVB World Championships of next year will be in Izmir and Ankara, Turkey (Men) and Brno and Prosthejov, Czech Republic (Women). The Girl’s Youth Championship will visit the city of Nakhon Ratchasima in Thailand.
