Türkiye’s worldwide success
Erciyes Inc., the corporation behind the Erciyes Ski Resort, had officially commenced the Snow Volleyball European Tour in Türkiye in 2017.
“Volleyball is a sport that our country has achieved worldwide success in, so we are working to bring all its branches to Türkiye," the Turkish Volleyball Federation’s Deputy Chairman Alper Sedat Aslandas has said.
"We introduced snow volleyball in Türkiye simultaneously with Europe,” he has added, emphasising that the tournament would “once again annunciate the achievements of Türkiye across Europe.”
