Speaking on the digital redevelopment, Volleyball World head of digital, Motasem El Bawab, said it is only the beginning of the company’s fan-engagement plans.

“With Deltatre’s FORGE framework in place, we are just getting started as we are rolling out more digital products that will expand our entire ecosystem and engage even more fans,” El Bawab said.

“Deltatre was committed to implementing world-leading technology in such short time frame to super change our fan experience, in addition to thinking ahead to the evolution of our roadmap,” he said.
