The Libyan Al-Sweihli club won the title of the Arab Club Volleyball Championship, which ended on Wednesday in Jordan, after winning the final match against the Qatari club, Qatar. Al-Sweihli was able to defeat Qatar by three to one: “25-21, 25-22, 22-25, and 25-20”. 

This is the first Arab title in the history of Al-Sweihli club, which reached the final match for the first time in its history. However, this title is the second Arab title in the history of Libyan volleyball at the club level, as the Al-Tersana club previously won the Arab Championship title by defeating ES Tunis, when Libya organized the first Arab Club Championship in 1978.

The municipality of Misrata announced on Wednesday evening that it had decided to consider Thursday, February 29, 2024, an official holiday in all institutions and sectors within the municipality, on the occasion of the Al-Sweihli team’s victory in the Arab Club Volleyball Championship.

The Misrata Municipality Facebook page posted that Mayor Mahmoud Al-Soktari and members of the municipal council congratulated the club for winning the Arab Championship title, an unprecedented achievement in the club’s history. Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah also congratulated the Al-Sweihli team.
