One-time CEV Champions League winners and nine-time French national championship Ligue A gold medalists, Paris Volley, are under the investigation for financial mismanagement, 100% volley-ball français reported.


For the purpose of paying taxes, the French men’s volleyball powerhouse Paris Volley declared the amount of money they pay for the players and the coaching staff for the ongoing season which instantly caused controversies among other clubs in the Ligue A. Paris claim their payroll value is 255,000 euros, which means about 1,800 euros gross per player and the coach.

Knowing that Paris have many players who are regular national team members of various countries such as Hungarian Roland Gegrye, Dutch Wouter ter Maat, Portuguese Nuno Pinheiro, Frenchman Franck Lafitte, American Mitchell Stahl, etc., other Ligue A clubs expressed doubts on the possibility of Paris to maintain such a squad with 255,000 euros and demanded more transparency, 100% volley-ball français published . How is this possible, they wonder, if Nice Volley Ball declared the smallest payroll in the Ligue A, which is 425,000 euros? And, how is this possible when even Division 2 clubs declared a higher payroll? The same source said that Ligue A clubs might refuse to play Paris in the national championship until the tangle of their financial management unwraps!


Because of this, Paris will face investigation for financial mismanagement which will be conducted by the DNACG, the National Directorate of Assistance and Management Control (an organization charged with controlling the administrative, financial and legal management of the clubs competing in the French professional leagues).

The DNACG is already examining documents on this matter and will start an investigation in early February, 100% volley-ball français confirmed.

VNL M: Italy get rude awakening from Australia, Brazil and Poland suffer 3 defeats in a row!

I dont think people understand how affected this Brazilian team was affected by the negative news from their Government on pulling funding from sports teams and athletics in the country. it was a punch in the gut from a country that already is reeling with issues. Bruno was the one who publicly called the government out. Clearly he is affected. Its a darn shame. Reply

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
