The French men’s volleyball powerhouse Paris Volley faces administrative relegation to the lower rank!


 

Paris Volley won the battle in front of the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF) for competing in the last season’s playoffs after being excluded by the decision of the National Directorate of Support and Management Control (DNACG) due to financial mismanagement but may lose even more important one!

Nine-time French champions have been administratively relegated from the country’s top division Ligue A and will play Division 2 (Ligue B) next season, the above-mentioned DNACG decided. The decision has yet to be confirmed by the National Volleyball League (LNV) but it is a mere formality.

This is not a first time for Paris to face the relegation as they had to move to Division 2 by the administrative decision in the summer of 2007 while they were national champions. Back then, Paris did not comply with the plan of the clearance of their deficit (260,000 euros) which was proposed by the conciliator of the French sports.

Paris will appeal on the DNACG decision and in case of confirmation they will go to the CNOSF, just like they did when facing expulsion from the playoffs in April.

FIVB drastically reduces number of players per team in Nations League?

While I understand and appreciate the VNL organizers and investors want the best product on the floor everytime and all the time, each of these federations also have financial , logistical and athletic investments to consider and protect. The demands in time, travel and player health is seriously tested during this event.
This move of roster limitations is not healthy for the sport. Growth and experience within each Federation can be achieved through the VNL and expanded rosters. Here is where the next generation of stars can play side by side or against today's stars and deeper interest in each country's rosters can be generated. In addition, we all have to realize that we want to make sure the 12 teams competing at the Olympics are at full strength. This move actually hurts that possibility.
The VNL is a great tourney and still evolving in my opinion but this move is a step back. I sure hope they reverse this Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply
