One of the major positives of the joint MOU is that both the FIVB as well as Bengaluru Torpedos hope to germinate a sporting culture. This is possible through various activities like high-performance and grassroots activities, mass participation programs and a free and fair exchange of knowledge.

Both partners hope to achieve this through quality sports science and medical services with the added benefit of good coaching and judicious officiating. Indian volleyball has already received a major boost with the inception of the franchise-based volleyball competition, the Prime Volleyball League. Now, with the signing of this MOU, Indian volleyball looks more stable and sustainable than it has ever been in the recent times.
