The board of directors of the French Volleyball Federation (FFVolley) validated the extension of the contract with the men’s national team head coach Laurent Tillie until the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.


Following the contract which Tillie reached with the Japanese men’s club Panasonic Panthers, the FFVolley decided to extend its contract with the expert, who will lead the “Les Bleus” at the postponed Tokyo Olympics (July 23 - August 8, 2021).

Actually, the FFVolley and the Panthers have agreed on this matter, meaning that Tillie will be at the helm of the France Men for the ninth straight year. The unofficial news on this appeared a month ago. During that time, he commanded the team to win the gold medal at the 2015 CEV EuroVolley and at the two FIVB Volleyball Nations Leagues. Tillie’s record on the bench of the France Men is 170 victories and 62 defeats (73% success).

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).
