BVF Statement on UK Sport Funding Announcement

The British Volleyball Federation today received confirmation from UK Sport that we will not receive any funding for Great Britain teams in the lead up to Tokyo 2020.

Whilst the decision is not necessarily a surprise, we are disappointed that after the BVF was encouraged to invest in the development of a funding submission for beach volleyball and sitting volleyball, UK Sport have failed to support us and the majority of other team sports.

We intend to work with other sports such as basketball and handball to campaign for greater investment in team sports in the future.

The British Volleyball Federation and the home nations are working hard to secure the future of the sport and ensure that we can continue to develop talented athletes and achieve success on the international stage.
