Confederación Sudamericana de Voleibol (Spanish)
Confederação Sul-americana de Voleibol (Portuguese)
The CSV is the continental governing body for the sport of volleyball in South America. Its headquarters are located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was formed in 1946, even before the FIVB itself, and stands as the oldest of all volleyball continental confederations. The CSV presides over national volleyball federations located in South America and organizes continental competitions such as the South American Volleyball Championship (first in 1951) and the Pan American Games, sometimes in conjunction with other confederations and with the FIVB. It also takes part in the organization of qualification tournaments for major events such as the Olympic Games or the World Championship, and of international competitions hosted by one of its affiliated federations. There are 12 national federations affiliated to the CSV.
