Falconara Volley Ball celebrates 50 years
The week of celebrations for Falconara’s 50 years in volley ball ended with the interesting congress “Volley Ball, yesterday, today and tomorrow”; Falconara is the birthplace of Italian volley ball and boasts the famous companies Virtus and Gruppo sportivo Dinamis who later joined under the name of Pallavolo Falconara. The name of the white-green team is Kutiba (from the pharmaceutical product of its main sponsor, Acraf-Angelini) and it has won many important cups, including the CEV cup in 1986. Other historical sponsors of the team are: Api, Casali and Duna.
Casali’s sponsorship of the team has continued over the years, above all because of the company’s passion for this sport but also, to quote SKY Sport’s vice-director Lorenzo Dallari because volley ball is a very instructive sport that children should continue to play even after their school years, because it helps to appreciate true team spirit, sacrifice and friendship.
During the event, which was also attended by the former champion and current coach Andrea Anastasi, who flew in from Japan especially for this occasion, all the major sponsors reconfirmed their continued joint support for this great sport.
