Narbonne Valley administrative relegation: ‘I asked to be present at the hearing before the CNOSF,’ announced Kamel Chivry, vice president of sports for the Occitanie region

Attending the arena during Narbonne Volley’s title win at the Challenge Cup on 22 March, Kamel Chivry, Vice-President of the Occitanie region in charge of sport, explained the situation of the Aude Club and the administrative relegation in the federal sector. I wanted to talk about the possibility of

What are your thoughts on the situation around Narbonne Volley?

It is nothing new that we are supporting this club and helping transform it with this new hall that offers structured facilities. The region has been fully mobilized since the beginning for this team acting like UFOs on a national level. This is due to the successful development of the Spectacle Sport, which generated additional savings. Volleyball is a special field. For example, he does not have three channels broadcasting matches in League A. When we saw the problems of the Narbonne Club with President Carol Delga, we immediately stood behind him, understood the situation and showed the Ord Club that we were 100% on their side. rice field. We will support them to ensure that this club continues to evolve in League A. It’s great for French volleyball, especially since they just won the European Cup.

Have you taken any interventions to help the club?

We have a very good relationship with the French volleyball federation and will welcome the French men’s team, the Olympic champions and the Occitania women’s team to the great volleyball festival in the South of France. Montpellier Arena (August 20, France-Turkey for women, France-Brazil for men, editor’s note)Of course, I contacted the president and informed him of the situation with the Narbonne club and told him that the region was very responsive to support this club, which is an example at the national level. He, who manages the mediation of this file, then intervened with the CNOSF and warned the president of the importance of this club in Occitania and the same for French discipline when it won the Olympics. Also, at the level of private schools, it is also a sport that does not develop as easily as handball. Once upon a time Narbonne created this spectacle his sporting dimension and succeeded in bringing his family to become the flagship club in Narbonne and Aude. It is very rare for a team to bring 2,500-3,000 of him into our department. Therefore, as Vice President of the Occitanie Region for Sport and as President of the Regional Sports Council of Occitanie, I ask to attend the Narbonne Volley hearings prior to the CNOSF mediation. My goal is to show all the support we offer and to convey the importance of having this club in France. I think it will benefit the federation along with DNACG.

‘We must speak for the non-neutral community’

So, are you going to defend Narbonne Volley before the French National Olympic and Sports Commission on August 17th?

I had it done before. There was a weakened club situation. This is for him to show CNOSF that communities and institutions are behind Narbonne, and it is important that they understand that the club is not stranded on every corner. He’s not just any president. Everyone knows Jeremy Librel’s attachment and spontaneity, but we also know all that it could have caused in Narbonne. Inevitably, addressing such issues head-on, “This club fully deserves its place in League A. Perhaps it has a slightly different and interesting structure.” All have to deliver the same non-neutral community language. He is one of the most sporting cities in France and has the highest number of sports enthusiasts at national level. So I hope that collectively our voices will be heard. It is amazing to see Narbonne Bollée, who gathers the support of many people beyond Narbonne and Aude, a family, children, who can experience weakness. I have to.

Narbonne Bollée president Jeremy Riborel has postponed the transition to society. What do you think ?

This example we are going through hopes the results are positive and we can bring things together with federations, leagues and sports movements. It is necessary to understand that there is I think Jeremy Librel was right to turn the club into a company. Because it makes it possible to create an entire economy. This is not possible with associative structures.For now I think it would be good for him to postpone this change at his club, but we have to look at everything to explain it. “If we want volleyball to grow and become a source of economic attraction, we have to make things happen.”So I’m of the opinion to create the best structure to get you through this stage of official League A maintenance. Every club today is trying to run its own venue and economy. Narbonne is currently touring France and Europe, but with the image of the city, Aude and Occitanie, people forget it. An important factor in attracting companies is that sports are both private and public. This is where the Narbonnet Club gets it all and it’s up to us to be the facilitators.
