VNZ welcome ASICS to the volleyball whanau

Volleyball New Zealand is delighted to confirm ASICS will be the organisation's official footwear provider as of July 2023.

The agreement supports Volleyball NZ's high-performance teams, the Volley Ferns & Volley Blacks - as well as aiming to educate & engage the growing volleyball community on the technology available in ASICS footwear. Traditional six-a-side volleyball is the fourth most popular sport in New Zealand secondary schools with 24,000 young people playing last year, bending the trend of most traditional team sports.

“We’re delighted to welcome ASICS as a partner to the Volleyball NZ whanau. ASICS is a premium brand in the volleyball community globally and we’re excited about how can activate our partnership with them to support the game in New Zealand - right from our pinnacle international teams to our community members and players,” said Volleyball NZ Interim CEO Steven Upfold.

ASICS look forward to helping Volleyball New Zealand as they continue their campaigns and maximise their growing participation rates. Also increased exposure of the sport is high on the agenda. ASICS product is designed with the athlete in mind and provides technology that helps athlete perform at their highest level.


The Asics Blast FF 3 is ASICS’ latest volleyball shoe. Built as an indoor court shoe, it features top-tier stability and support. Your foot sits low to the ground and is contained within the midsole, reducing the foots movement whilst on the court. Stability protects your ankles.  The team at ASICS look forward to supporting our national representative players in their upcoming season. For all your Volleyball footwear needs check out the ASICS selection here including the BLAST FF worn by the Volley Blacks and Volley Ferns.
