The presence of the world stars in some clubs is adding to the quality and competitiveness of this tournament.”

CC President Mr Emile Jabbour from Lebanon delivered the message of AVC President Mrs Rita Subowo to the host nation and also appreciated the contributions of all the LOC for preparing everything, “I had a short meeting upon arrival with my Iranian friends who are CC Members and I could see everything go well in terms of organizations. I am confident that Iran shows quality in hosting this event like before.” 

Technical Delegate Mr Mahmoud Afshardoust, himself  AVC Coaches Committee Member, emphasized on the good level of the event and said, “Iran is experienced in hosting many Asian events that is indicative of good hosting. He added, “All the technical requirements of teams including uniforms, O2-bis, eligibility of the players will be explained to the teams in the preliminary inquiry.”

Referee Delegate Mr Mohammad Shahmiri welcomed the CC Members and shared his experience from the recent Asian Women’s Club Championship in Semey, Kazakhstan in April and invited everyone to cooperate closely to be able to make the tournament a smooth run.

“We will not have the General Technical Meeting and all the technical matters will be passed to the teams in the Preliminary inquiry,” Amir Tolouekian, AVC Sub Technical Delegate who is also the Competition Director of National Federation, said.
