Imoco Volley Conegliano became the women’s volleyball club world champions for the first time in history!

 

Imoco Volley Conegliano defeated Turkish side Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul in the final of the 2019 FIVB Club World Championship in Shaoxing, China, to win the first-ever world title! Italy waited for 27 years for some team to repeat the success of Teodora Ravenna (currently compete under the name Conad Olimpia Teodora Ravenna in the second division) who beat Itambé Minas in the final in Jesi in 1992.

The team coached by Daniele Santarelli finished the competition with a perfect record (5-5) and with a victory in their first-ever final: 3-1 (22-25, 25-14, 25-19, 25-21). Imoco were driven to claiming already the second trophy of the season, after having raised the national Super Cup, by gigantic Paola Egonu. She scored game-high 33 points, while Serbian Tijana Bošković tallied 24 for Eczacıbaşı.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
