Following the end of the League Round last weekend, the semifinals of this year’s CEV European Golden League in Kortrijk (Belgium) for men and Ruse (Bulgaria) for women, are confirmed.


In the men's Final Four tournament, the first semifinal pair are the defending champions Turkey and Estonia, while the second pair are Belgium and Ukraine. The Final Four of the CEV European Golden League in Kortrijk (Belgium) is scheduled for June 19-20.

Estonia won the competition in 2016 and 2018, Ukraine achieved success in 2017, and Turkey two years later - so Belgium is the only one among the four teams competing in Kortrijk has not yet tasted the glory of the European League.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
