A bizarre thing occurred in Game 2 of the 2018/19 Super League playoff finals in Iran...

 

Game 2 of the playoff finals in Iranian men’s volleyball league between Saipa and Varamin last night was delayed for about 90 minutes due to the rainwater that was falling on the court from the ceiling of Tehran hall.

 

During Game 1 that was held last week some of Saipa players objected to the wet floor and water dripping from the ceiling. But, supervisors did not pay too much attention to it.

The result in the Super League playoff finals between Saipa and Varamin is 1-1 at the moment.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
