The 2018/19 French Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists Poitiers are close to completely assemble their roster for the next season.


Poitiers gained one of the biggest world volleyball prospects at the moment, Micah Ma’a. A 22-year-old American player, currently competing in the 2019 FIVB Nations League with his country’s national team, has chosen the French Championship side to be the first club in his professional career. Ma’a, who can cover two positions that have nothing in common – setter’s and outside hitter’s – competed in the NCAA for the UCLA Bruins, a team at whose helm is the USA Men head coach John Speraw.

Earlier, Poitiers signed outside hitters - Florian Lacassie (SWD Powervolleys Düren, Germany) and Brazilian Chizoba Neves Atu (Pärnu VK, Estonia), and middle blockers - Iranian Ali Shafiei (Saipa Tehran, Iran) and Brazilian Gladstone Magalhães (G.A.S. Pamvochaikos, Greece).

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
