Graça F° said. “Mikasa has supplied equipment for the FIVB since volleyball first appeared in the Olympic programme, back in 1964.

Cancun, Mexico, 16 November, 2018 - The FIVB and Mikasa Corporation revealed the design of the new “V200W” indoor volleyball in a special ceremony tonight, followed by a celebratory dinner hosted by the FIVB and Mikasa for all delegates attending the 36th FIVB World Congress in Cancun, Mexico.The V200W features a perfectly balanced, 18-panel aerodynamic design that improves ball movement and gives players greater control. With enhanced visibility, the new indoor ball will optimise the quality of play and maximise excitement on the court.The double-dimpled microfiber surface stabilises the flight path of the ball and creates additional cushioned ball control, whilst the anti-sweat functionality “Nano Balloon Silica” prevents the surface of the ball from becoming slippery during intense play. The ball exceeds the FIVB’s homologation standards and passed stringent testing protocols, carried out by leading national teams and clubs over the last six months.The V200W will make its debut at the 2019 FIVB Volleyball World Cup and replaces the MVA200, which was first used at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.Following the announcement, FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graça F said:“Mikasa has supplied equipment for the FIVB since volleyball was first included on the Olympic Programme at Tokyo’s first Olympic Games in 1964, and the V200W will be the new FIVB official game ball. “Mikasa shares the FIVB’s vision for sporting innovation and I believe that our ongoing relationship will go from strength to strength as we move forward together.”Mikasa President Yuji Saeki said:“Our partnership with the FIVB has formed a fundamental relationship for our organisation for many years, and I am delighted to launch the V200W, which will be seen and used around the world. “It is my hope that the FIVB and Mikasa will share many more future moments like this.”Please click the following images to see the ball details.Mikasa - Cancun Dinner - 16.11.2018

IMOCO VOLLEY CONEGLIANO WON THE FIRST DERBY BETWEEN MIKASA TEAM UNIFORMTHE PANTHERS DEFEATED IGOR GORGONZOLA NOVARA AND CONQUERED THE ITALIAN SUPER CUP The Mikasa Team Uniform project has never been so ambitious and competitive in the Italian women's volleyball championship and the test took place during the Italian Super Cup. To compete for the first trophy of the 2018/19 season were two clubs that chose Mikasa as a technical sponsor. On one side the Italian Champion of Imoco Volley Conegliano, on the sixth consecutive year of sponsorship, on the other the Igor Gorgonzola Novara, our prestigious new entry for the Mikasa Team Uniform.These two teams are the maximum expression for technical, organizational and budget quality of the Italian women's movement. After having been dueling last season in all the national competitions (Supercoppa, Coppa Italia and Scudetto), these two teams met in Treviso in front of almost 4000 spectators who came to watch live performances of six protagonists of the 2018 World Championship final: Danesi, De Gennaro and Sylla for Imoco Volley Conegliano and Egonu, Chirichella and the gold medalist Stefana Veljkovic for Igor Gorgonzola Novara. Imoco Volley Conegliano, coached by Daniele Santarelli, with a 3-1 win over Novara, repeated the 2016 victory and conquered the fifth title of their history.In the first two set Conegliano has controlled the game even though both were equally strong teams. Under 2-0 came out the great pride of a team like Novara. Coach Barbolini has given balance and experience with the eternal Francesca Piccinini and has relied on the powerful spikes of Paola Egonu. Movements that seemed to be able to write another end to the match until Wolosz and her teammates changed their rhythm again. A spike by Miriam Sylla kicked off the party.Among the winners Ms. Miyu Nagaoka, the spiker in the Japanese National Team, at her first experience in Italy moved from Hisamitsu Springs in Japan. Her name enters the history of Italian women's volleyball: she is the first Japanese player to have won a title in Italy. The media coverage of this event was also record-breaking: there were 115 nations that broadcasted the match.
