The Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL) will start the 2020/21 season without TV Rottenburg. After almost 20 years of competition in the Bundesliga, the club will not apply for a license for the 1st or 2nd Bundesliga in the 2020/2021 season. That decision comes as a result of a coronavirus pandemic that affected sponsor possibilities for the coming season.


In the Bundesliga, they were surprised by this decision because they felt that there was a possibility for the joint efforts to find a solution in this difficult situation.

There are also rumors that some other clubs are in a difficult situation about securing a budget for next season, so there is a possibility that TV Rottenburg will not be a lone case. 

The Volleyball Bundesliga management expressed its readiness to engage, if necessary, in the process of finding a solution for clubs in this delicate situation.

As a first step, club applications and licensing deadlines for the upcoming season are postponed to a later date.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply
