The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) has launched a relief support fund for professional volleyball players affected by the pandemic of the novel COVID-19.


The FIVB launched an Athletes’ Relief Support fund aiming to provide short-term assistance to professional indoor volleyball and beach volley players who have been financially affected after the postponement and cancellation of the FIVB events due to coronavirus pandemic. This fund will primarily assist players who are currently unable to afford basic necessities such as food, family care, and housing.

The FIVB will put its Task Force in charge of evaluating applications in order to ensure fair distribution of financial aid. Those players clear from sanctions both on national and international levels, without anti-doping rules violations, and having participated in the minimum required number of FIVB events during the 2018/19 will have an upper hand in receiving money from the fund.

Recall that the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) provided one-time financial assistance to clubs.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

Vargas chooses nothing because neither turkish nor other federation invited her to play in their nt, except for the serbs. she is neither an egonu (italian born african) nor an ismailoglu (bosnian born turk) and vargas may damage the chemistry of an nt. however terzic, her coach for years, is close to her and may be covinced to adapt her to the serbian team.

we must focus on 2 points: this 'veil of secrecy' and reaction of people in the website.

serbs surely kept things secret,as they were afraid if turks discovered their intention they would also made an offer to her which would ruin serbs'dreams.
but this 'veil of secrecy' may cause big drouble to terzic and fenerbahce may fire him and even vargas next year...but these are my personal opinions. lets wait and see.

more interesting is after fake news that vargas would play for turkey drove some people in the worldofvolley mad, they screamed like 'scandalous....must be prohibited....big fraud', and now i see these crusader-minded idiots keep silence. :D Reply
