Turkish clubs had a perfect score in the remaining encounters of the quarterfinals of the 2021 CEV Women’s Volleyball Challenge Cup.


With Romania’s C.S.M Volei Alba Blaj and Hungary’s 1.MCM-Diamant Kaposvár securing their berths in the semifinals, a week ago, two berths remained vacant and were filled today - both by Turkish sides (who will face each other in the semis).

THY İstanbul closed a tournament in Las Palmas (Spain) with two wins. Firstly, they beat Romania’s C.S.M. Lugoj by 3-0 in the 1/8 finals, while today, they swept France’s Vandœuvre Nancy VB: 3-0 (25-21, 25-21, 25-19). Ebrar Karakurt top-scored THY with 17 points, while Büşra Şahin made 5 blocks. American Madison Kingdon was superb in reception (93 %; 53 % excellent).

As hosts, Sistem9 Yeşilyurt İstanbul prevailed over Lithuania’s TK Kaunas VDU by a 3-0 in the eighth-finals yesterday and, led by Canadian Jennifer Cross (13 points; 4 blocks), over Portugal’s Kairós Ponta Delgada with the same result in the quarterfinals today.

FIVB makes changes to several rules to improve attractiveness of play

Fivb is corrupt! Why are eczasibasi and vakifbank going against lowest ranked teams in final and they orchestrated it in a way where either team could make it to final. Why because they know Conegliano and novara could eliminate them now. Coincidence???? Reply
