Former Finnish Men’s Volleyball National Team member is close to sign with Olympiacos O.S. Piraeus.


As revealed, an experienced 31-year-old opposite Mikko Oivanen agreed terms with Greek runners-up Olympiacos for 2017/2018.

Mikko Oivanen spent last season in homeland, playing in the national championship silver medalists Hurrikaani Loimaa along with his twin brother Matti, averaging 51% positive attack.

In case Olympiacos carry hiring Ivan Miljković into effect, Oivanen would probably be a backup for the Serbian legend.

Just one notice.Oivanen will be our first opposite as Miljkovic said on that very website that he doesnt want to come back on teams he used to play. Also in Greece there is a limit of four foreign players a team can sign so with Oivanen there are Drzyzga, Alexiev, Rauwerdink and Oivanen.The second opposite will be Nikos Zoupanis. Anyone who knows the Finish player can tell some info about him please?

Re: @Alexander
Thanks for the info about Iran although I would expect something like clues about his playing style.He might not be in a good stage in his career but he has been playing in Poland for many years so I guess he is not that bad.

Re: @Sorin Acela Hence my comment that is time for new people in FIVB since existing ones are consist from old, senile men who are making more damage than good

UPDATE: World Grand Prix will no longer exist under this name!

Nothing to add is just a name, like if tomorrow they decide to put an sponsor to it like BBVA World League of Volleyball or ALLIANZ Super World League, change the name the concept is the same, now change the rules and i will kill u :p Reply
