The rematch of the 2021 Men’s Volleyball CEV Cup final had aftermath that does not suit this sport.


Last night, Dinamo Moscow defeated Zenit Saint Petersburg for the 6th time this season and won the 2021 Men’s CEV Cup in the first-ever all-Russian final of the competition. As the club from the capital of Russia reported, the encounter was spoiled by the extremely unprofessional level of organization of the sporting event of the hosts, Zenit.

Several organized groups of fans (including one consisting entirely of schoolchildren) arrived to support Dinamo in the away match at Sibur Arena. It all started with the behavior of the local security service who was allegedly extremely defiant and aggressive towards these fans, forbidding them to bring flags and banners to their sector in the stands. This security (licensed) was reinforced with some unknown persons with incomprehensible security badges, who were also rude and refused to identify themselves.

During the award ceremony, the Dinamo fan, for which the club stressed to be one of their most prominent fans, ran out onto the court to share the joy of victory with the players. Given this is not allowed by the regulation of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV), security was obligated to escort him out of the court. Instead, which is visible in the video, several guards started beating the fan. Dinamo stated that medical assistance came to help 20 minutes after the incident for which they blame Zenit as organizers because rules for holding sports and entertainment events clearly say that an ambulance on duty must be present at the facility until the last spectator leaves.


Dinamo added that during the awards ceremony, insulting shouts at their players were heard from the stands.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
