About the LNV
For 35 years, first under the name Ligue Promotionnelle de Volley-Ball (1987 to 1999) and now under the name Ligue Nationale de Volley (LNV), the authority has been ensuring the smooth running of national competitions in many ways. Its attributions are wide but always turned towards the interest of the clubs, in a common desire of promotion of the French volleyball.
Administratively and financially autonomous, the LNV organizes, controls and manages the national professional competitions, such as the French championships LAM, LAF and LBM, which have become more and more attractive in recent seasons. In addition to the sporting management of events, the N.L.V. also fulfills a necessary and valuable role as a "policeman", notably through the DNACG, which provides clubs and their players with a legal framework in compliance with French legislation. The N.V.L. also scrupulously watches over the defense of the material and moral interests of pro volleyball and works closely with the clubs, to whom it provides help and advice.
In recent years, the NVA has clearly taken an ambitious approach to the development of French volleyball. With the return of the Play-Offs for the three divisions, the five-set series, the creation of Play-Offs for the 5th European place in the LAM, the regulatory body aims at a structural and economic rise of professional volleyball in the next two or three years. In this sense, a work of accompaniment of the clubs was undertaken in a concern of professional and structural development.
