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: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
