Albanian Federation’s President pleased with remarkable developments

Tirana, Albania, July 31, 2017. The 2017 summer season has been a truly exciting one for Albania’s Volleyball family so far, with many good results and medals, thus showing that the teams from the Balkan country have become more and more competitive at all levels. This applies not only to the senior national teams, which successfully competed in this year’s European League, but also to the junior and youth teams participating in Balkan competitions – as well as to the players representing Albania in Beach Volleyball.

“We are very happy with the results we have achieved this far, since such victories and medals represent a great triumph for Albanian Volleyball. These results bode well for the future and I am very happy with this,” said Erlind Pellumbi, President of the Albanian Volleyball Federation.

Albania have returned to compete internationally in all age groups and the country has achieved truly remarkable results. However, this is only the beginning of a long journey. “These results are not coming by chance, because we all have been working hard to reach this level. Of course, we are not stopping here, on the contrary, now we are more motivated to continue along this path. We did something great in a relatively short time, and now the most difficult part of our journey begins, since we will have to confirm and repeat these results. I want to thank everybody for showing so much passion and love for the national teams,” said Pellumbi.

The summer season for Albanian Volleyball will continue with some more international and big tournaments, but the results from the European League and from some Balkan championships and Beach Volleyball tournaments have provided an extra boost of energy for all involved and for the coming months as well.
