The Brazilian men’s volleyball championship team Denk Academy Maringá Vôlei is facing huge financial problems and asked for help in order to pay the costs of its existence in the competition.

 

Maringá didn’t receive money transactions from their exclusive sponsor Denk Academy for 3 months and are forced to ask Superliga rivals to pay the travel expenses for the upcoming games. The team from the state of Paraná, who’s currently 7th placed in the standings of the championship (out of 12 teams), is counting on the support of Sada Cruzeiro, the next opponents, with the household change and payment of the costs of its trip to the match.

Maringá, who were founded by an Olympic champion Ricardo Garcia “Ricardinho”, have arrears of wages to players, coaching staff, and employees as many months as they didn’t receive money from the sponsor. This has already resulted in the departure of 3 players, among them an experienced opposite hitter Fabrício Dias “Lorena”.

The fans of Maringá have created an online crowdfunding campaign with the goal of reaching 1.8 million Brazilian reals (about 420,000 U.S. dollars) to finance the club.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
