It seems that the volleyball section of the Brazilian club Minas is most active in the ongoing period when competitions in this sport across the world are canceling day after a day due to coronavirus pandemic. At least, that’s what transfer rumors say…


Melhor do Vôlei reported that men’s side Fiat/Minas is aiming to compose quite a respectable roster for the next season and, just like the female section of the club, to become the title contender in the country.

Unofficially, the Belo Horizonte club is close to signing two Rio Olympics gold medalists: the opposite hitter Wallace Souza from Sesc RJ and the setter William Arjona from Sesi-SP. Both are involved in a social media challenge that the latter started to give the contribution to fighting the new COVID-19 infection that hit the entire world. In addition to Wallace and William, Minas want to return the middle blocker Flávio Gualberto, also from Sesc. Minas will part ways with their current starting opposite hitter Felipe Roque who might reinforce EMS Taubaté Funvic.

The female team of Minas allegedly made some transfer moves as well.

Unlike the 2019/20 Brazilian women’s championship, that was canceled, the men’s Superliga was only suspended.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
