The Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) has named Japanese sportswear brand Asics as its new kit supplier.
Asics will supply apparel for all Brazilian beach and court volleyball teams through to the end of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. It replaces Olympikus, the Brazilian sportswear brand that has been supplying the CBV since 1998.
The new Asics-branded uniforms will first be on show at the João Pessoa beach volleyball tournament, which takes place between 26th January and 29th January 2017.
Brazil has a strong volleyball tradition. At the 2016 Rio Olympics, the men’s beach and indoor volleyball teams won gold, while the women’s beach volleyball team took home the silver medal.
