Ganten becomes the new Global Partner of FIVB and will provide mineral water across the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship until 2022. Ganten will also design a special athletes bench for the VNL. Besides the above collaborations, Ganten will work with FIVB on digital activations of FIVB events, as well as making volleyball-themed TV marketing content and organizing marketing campaigns which will appear on CCTV 5.
