Croatian Paralympic Committee (CPC) secretary general Ticijan Komparic says the body is sure this year’s ParaVolley European Championships in Porec will be a "very positive experience" for all concerned.
CPC and ParaVolley Europe (PVE) representatives recently held a meeting to discuss the organisational needs for the event, which is scheduled to take place from November 4 to 12.
Logistics and communications were two of the topics discussed.
The CPC also stressed the importance of this event, which will become the largest Para-sport competition ever to take place in the country, to promote Paralympic sport across Croatia.
It will be looking to use its experience of organising more than 10 major World and European competitions for people with impairment.
"We are really proud to organise the ParaVolley European Championships for men and women," Komparic said.
"It's the largest team competition for people with impairment ever held in Croatia, so there is a lot of work ahead of us.
"Thanks to the experience we have gained by organising numerous other competitions, we are sure that this will be another very positive experience."
More than 400 players from 16 countries will compete at the ParaVolley European Championships.
Matches, of which there will be more than 70, will be broadcast via Croatian National Television (HRT).
An online livestream will also be provided.
"This Championship opens a brand-new era for European sitting volleyball," PVE President Toralv Thorkildsen said.
"Croatia is hosting our premier sitting volleyball event for the very first time.
"ParaVolley Europe and the CPC as organisers are working hand-in-hand for the successful delivery of this much-awaited event."
Bosnia and Herzegovina are the reigning champions in the men's competition, while Ukraine hold the women’s title.
At last year's Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Bosnia and Herzegovina's men's team finished runners-up to Iran.
Ukraine's women were beaten in the semi-finals by China and then went onto lose the bronze medal match against hosts Brazil.
