The economic crisis that emerged after the coronavirus pandemic kept on hitting volleyball clubs around the world.


It seems that clubs in Brazil are among those that are hit the most severely by the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Bruno Voloch, the Superliga Feminina runners-up, Sesc-RJ (coached by the legendary Bernardo Rezende), were forced to cut players’ salaries by up to 50%. Furthermore, the Rio de Janeiro club will have no foreigners in the squad for the next season.

This decision of the management of Sesc came after two other imposed to alleviate the financial blow: the budget cut and merger with C. R. Flamengo. Voloch stressed that no player will leave the club despite the salary cut, including the biggest stars Fabíola, Lorenne, Drussyla, and Juciely.

Prior to Sesc, men’s clubs Cruzeiro, Sesi, and Sesc also had to make radical moves, some in cutting wages and budget, and some in completely dismantling the squad and ceasing to exist.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
