The Somali Volleyball Federation successfully concluded the country’s 30th Men’s championship with the Somali military team Horseed winning the final match this weekend.
Horseed which is recognised as the country’s most powerful volleyball team defeated Dekedaha 3-1 in the final match which was played at the Wiish stadium. The match gathered a big number of spectators including Ministry of Sports and Youth, Somali NOC executive committee members and Other Distinguished Somali Sports personalities.
Somali Volleyball Federation Secretary General Mohamed Abukar Hirei who addressed at the closing ceremony of the competition said that Volleyball had attracted an increasing interest amongst the Somali people since the federation returned into the world volleyball platform.
“On the behalf of Somali Volleyball Federation I would like to thank Mogadishu City council which donated complete equipment to the participating teams, because our teams have no sponsors and without Mogadishu City, we couldn’t have done such successful competition,” Somali Volleyball Federation Secretary General Mohamed Abukar Hirei told the closing ceremony over the weekend.
“Volleyball is now growing here in Somalia and we are planning to participate in the near future Zone 5 beach volleyball competition,” the Secretary General said adding that his federation will also participate in the FIVB and CAVB meetings.
For his part, Somali Volleyball Federation President Engineer Abdulkader Omar Abukar thanked the CAVB President Dr. Amir Elwani who he said was always committed to helping the promotion of volleyball in Somalia.
