President of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) Mr Aleksandar Boricic welcomed representatives of the European University Sports Association (EUSA) - Secretary General Mr Matjaz Pecovnik and Sports Manager Mr Besim Aliti on June 29 in his office in Belgrade, Serbia.

Mr Boricic thanked the EUSA representatives for the proactive approach and initiating the collaboration between the two organizations and emphasized that it is also in interest of CEV to get more involved in university sport and promote the values of dual careers. In addition, closer involvement of CEV in supporting technical organization of EUSA competitions was discussed.
