The University of New York in Prague partners with VK LVI PRAHA

Oct 31 2022
The University of New York in Prague is proud to announce our newest partner, Prague’s leading volleyball club, VK LVI PRAHA.

This partnership launched at the start of the volleyball season with the first match being a home game held at UNYP Arena on the 25th of September. UNYP has a proven track record in the sports culture across the Czech Republic and feels that it strongly aligns with its greater mission of developing well rounded, culturally aware students that can think for themselves.

Our motto is greatly improved when you realize that ‘tomorrow’s leaders need a healthy mind in a healthy body in which to lead. UNYP also feels that it is essential that young athletes and fans know that there are many career opportunities in competitive sports beyond direct athletic participation.

Over the past five years, UNYP has increased our presence within the Czech sporting community by supporting teams and clubs that are in need but also working closely with the Czech Olympic Team which culminated last year in the University of New York in Prague becoming the official Supplier of Education for the Czech Team’s Dual Career program

“The key to success is to develop a healthy mind and a healthy body equally. Since 1998, we have strived to complement the top-quality academic education that we give our students with free gym memberships, free swimming pool access, and our own UNYP Blazers sports teams, so today’s announcement should come as no surprise,” says UNYP’s General Manager, Sotiris Foutsis.

UNYP is the only school currently offering Sports Management as a concentration of their Business Administration degree, giving students the skills, they need to handle the business side of sports. The program has seen keen interest among athletes and sports fans who wish to study a more business-related sports program than a traditional science-based Sports Management degree.  

UNYP’s Marketing Director Mark Anderson mentions: “I also want to highlight that this partnership will benefit UNYP students too and encourage them to interact with the teams and go to their games. This will not be a one-way sponsorship, but a partnership that will benefit the young people on both sides of the relationship. The addition of LVI Praha is a natural extension of our mission, they believe in and hold similar values and they are homed at the UNYP Arena.”

We all wish our new partner the best of luck for the upcoming season!
