The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) won’t yet comment on the situation regarding the 2022 Men’s World Championship in Russia whose holding is at risk due to the doping-related scandal of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). Also, the governing body of the world volleyball didn't say a word about the possible suspension of Russian volleyball players from international events.


Until the Executive Committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) makes the decision on the status of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), that will affect the participation of the Russian athletes at international competitions and Russia’s organization of these kinds of events, the FIVB will restrain from commenting on the matter.

The FIVB will not make any comment until the WADA CRC process regarding RUSADA compliance (including any potential appeals), has concluded.” was told to TASS by the press service of the FIVB.

Recall that in case WADA imposes sanctions against RUSADA, both men’s and women’s volleyball national teams of Russia will be banned from competing at the 2020 Olympics, as well as all Russian athletes, while the organization of the 2022 FIVB Men’s World Championship that’s supposed to be held in 10 cities across Russia will be canceled.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
