Volleyball World - News

Equal Jersey Ambassador Nimir Abdel-Aziz of the Netherlands is one of the elite athletes currently competing at the FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship, which has gathered 24 teams from around the world in Poland and Slovenia from August 26 to September 11. Listen to the star opposite's thoughts on diversity and mutual respect and get to know the Equal Jersey initiative, which brings together the world's leading players to help promote equality.

Nimir says: "Volleyball can be really helpful, and I think it already is. I think it is showing to the people watching that we are working in the teams, that there should be equality and that everyone is helping each other."

Everybody should feel the same and be able to do the same things. Nimir

Nimir was the first player to score over 30 points in a single match at the 2022 Men's World Championship, helping his country to a 3-2 victory against Olympic bronze medallists Argentina to claim a place in the Round of 16.

All the best to the #EqualJersey Ambassadors competing at the World Champs!
