Volleyball World has announced the return of the Equal Jersey campaign at the Volleyball Nations League (VNL). Building on the success of the previous editions, this initiative aims to celebrate the sport's status as a global leader in gender-equality.
With equal interest from both women and men in play, a gender-balanced fanbase, and equal prize money, volleyball stands out as the most gender-equal team sport globally.
The Equal Jersey campaign will feature player activations during the semi-finals, third-place match and VNL Finals in Arlington, Texas (Women’s Finals, 12-16 July) and Gdansk, Poland (Men’s Finals, 19-23 July). In each of these matches, one player per team will proudly wear the Equal Jersey until the end of the first set.
