The U.S. website gazettereview.com has created a list of top 10 highest paid male pro volleyball players in the world.

 

The first question that comes to our mind is - are those numbers real? If YES, volleyball has made a progress, comparing with the previous two seasons.

Those amounts are not the even close to be similar like in the article that we published for the season 2015/2016 – Pro volleyball players’ salaries, male and female.

There is no dilemma about who earns the highest amount in the world per season – it’s Wilfredo Leon, the outside spiker of Zenit Kazan. The French star Earvin Ngapeth comes as second, while in the third place is Bartosz Kurek. Also, it is interesting there are three players from Zenit Kazan on the list…

Top 10 list of the highest paid volleyball players:

1. Wilfredo Leon (Zenit) – 1 400 000 $ (around 1 189 000 €) per season

2. Earvin Ngapeth (Modena) – 1 350 000 $ (around 1 147 000 €)

3. Bartosz Kurek (Ziraat Bankasi) – 1 100 000 $ (around 934 300 €)

4. Simon Robertlandy (Sada Cruzeiro) – 967 000 $ (around 821 300 €)

5. Dmitry Muserskiy (Belogorie) – 950 000 $ (around 807 000 €)

6. Gyorgy Grozer (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk) – 870 000 $ (around 739 000 €)

7. Matt Anderson (Zenit Kazan) – 850 000 $ (around 722 000 €)

8. Maxim Mikhailov (Zenit Kazan) – 714 000 $ (around 606,000 €)

9. Ivan Zaytsev (Perugia) – 620 000 $ (around 527,000 €)

 

Of Course, this is unofficial list made by the U.S. website gazettereview.com. However, we are wondering are those numbers real?

Later on, you will read reaction from one player from the list, who has talked about those numbers - Stay tuned.

TUR M: Bulgarian NT opposite on tryout in Halkbank

Again wrong info. Velizar signed contract!! No on tryout!! Reply

FINALLY – Professional men’s volleyball league in USA will be launched soon!

Many questions :
Stability of league, including financial one – for how long?
Will be here the best players, coaches from all over the world, as is now in leagues in Italy, Brazil, Poland, Russia, if yes when ?
Will be selected the best visible and recognizable ball for TV/internet fans? Will i/they be selected on some independent and complex analyses?
Will matches be on Internet?
Doping control – rules?
Sponsoring – some limitation?
International season – will they fully participate in FIVB projects?
