The three-time winners of the FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship, Sada Cruzeiro, renewed the contract with a player that wears their jersey longest ever in the history of the club.


Nobody wore the Cruzeiro jersey for that long as the player who has just agreed on the contract renewal with the club, Filipe Ferraz. The veteran outside hitter will make his 11th season for the team based in Contagem. Thus, the 40-year-old player will continue captaining Cruzeiro for, at least, one more year.

Filipe joined Cruzeiro in 2010/11, winning as many as 37 titles with them. Among these titles, there are three claimed in the FIVB Club World Championship, seven in the South American Club Championship, six in the Brazilian Championship… As for individual awards, while defending the colors of Cruzeiro, Filipe was named Best Receiver in the Brazilian Championship once.

Prior to him, Superliga giants renewed with the setter Fernando Kreling “Cachopa”, outside hitter Rodrigo Leão “Rodriguinho”, middle blockers Isac Santos, Cledenilson Souza “Pingo” and Otávio Pinto, and libero Lucas de Deus “Lukinha”. Earlier, Cruzeiro promoted prospect opposite hitter Welinton Oppenkoski from the youth team to senior squad and brought back two players from a loan in América Vôlei - the libero Lucas Bauer and setter Rhendrick Rosa.

The only signing so far was of Cuban Miguel Ángel López.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
