Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 26, 2019. The city of Sarajevo played host earlier this month to the 2019 edition of the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival and a Snow Volleyball competition took place at the ‘Olympic mountain’ Bjelašnica with the support of the Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the R&S company.
The first Snow Volleyball event held at such an iconic venue brought together many business people. Following the slogan of the tournament organisers, “Making your job easier”, R&S Sarajevo provided an opportunity for sports activities, networking and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
The Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina provided special equipment taken from the CEV contingent for the “Equipping a Beach Volleyball court” project, since this is compatible with Snow Volleyball as well.
The tournament at Bjelašnica was a huge promotion for Snow Volleyball in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with participation of as many as 14 teams.
In this way, the Volleyball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina played a leading role in supporting the delivery of the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival, which featured more than 1,500 athletes from 46 European countries.
Kemal Selmanagić, General Manager of the company R&S Sarajevo expressed his satisfaction with the tournament: “We are extremely pleased that we gathered our clients in a relaxed atmosphere and had an opportunity to socialise with them. The opportunities for such gatherings are rare, and we will in the future support the organisation of more such sports activities in order to promote a healthy lifestyle.”
The competitors and visitors enjoyed the matches and fresh mountain air. All the fans had the opportunity to cheer their favourite teams in the stands set up only for this purpose.
A member of the winning team, Murat Čengić, commented afterwards: “Everything was great, and the organisation was excellent. We had a lot of fun and we hope that the same will happen again next year.”
