Official Launch of the Water Polo Players’ Organization (WPO)

Worldwide, April 22th, 2013 – The Water Polo Playersʼ Organization (WPO) is pleased to announce the launch of its official website and Twitter account @WPOofficial.

The WPO is a non-profit, independent international association conceived by a group of water polo athletes and other key figures that are currently working together as Founders of the Organization.

The WPOʼs main goal is to become the collective international voice of the world’s water polo athletes by increasing solidarity between water polo athletes, developing relations with governing water polo bodies and providing member support for water polo players internationally.

In order to ensure the largest enrollment of members, WPO membership is open to ALL players, both men and women, amateurs and former athletes, and is FREE for the first year (subsequent fees after the first term will remain low).

The Official Launch of the WPO (followed by a Press Conference broadcast via live streaming) will take place in Barcelona, Spain on July 20th, just prior to the World Championship Tournament.

Details concerning Member Services, Online Membership Enrollment, the Founders, the Official Launch and all other general information can all be found on the WPO website.

Please also note the WPO is currently in the process of recruiting women water polo athletes to serve as Founders, country delegates and to eventually sit on the Board.
