Alexis García, president of the Dominican Volleyball Federation, stressed that “The Champions Cup is the main tournament of Dominican volleyball.”
García offered the details of the fair in the framework of a large press conference held in the auditorium of the Regional Center for the Development of Volleyball, in the old volleyball pavilion of the Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center.
He explained that this will be the first of five stops that the contest will have in which each region will be represented by the team that survived a long qualifying process that included 32 provinces and almost all the municipalities throughout the country.
For his part, Amós Anglada, Technical Vice President of Fedovoli, highlighted the technical level of each of these teams, which has risen with the inclusion of four regional reinforcements.
In the meeting with the journalists, each team was represented by its main players, coaches and delegates.
Also present were Professor Nelson Ramírez, Fedovoli’s secretary; José Francisco Fernández (treasurer), the immortal Heida Joaquín Tineo, (director of the Medical Commission) and Professor Salvador Montes de Oca (director of the Arbitration Commission), among others.
