Sahara India Pariwar will sponsor the National volleyball men's teams (senior and junior) for the next four years.

“We see a lot of scope to develop volleyball. We have come forward to lend our support to the National teams before the Olympics, so that these talented athletes get motivated to perform better and bring laurels for the country,” said Sahara Group chairman Subrata Roy, on Monday.

Volleyball Federation of India president B.
