The transfer of the Russian male volleyball player Alexey Spiridonov to Olympiacos S.F.P. hasn’t been completed.


The transfer of the 2013 CEV EuroVolley and 2011 and 2013 FIVB Volleyball Nations League (ex-FIVB World League) winner Spiridonov to Greece’s Olympiacos, which was announced on the social media of the Russian Championship and by the player himself, hasn’t been completed.

“The deal with Olympiacos failed, they canceled the contract. That’s what happened. I had a contract in my hands, there was a verbal agreement to sign it. I’ll continue to look for a new team,” the famous Russian outside hitter stated.

Spiridonov’s manager added that a reason for not signing the contract remained unknown and said that he and a 32-year-old player will now look at the options in Turkey and in the Arab countries.

“Spirik” played last season for Ural, scoring 171 points in 17 matches.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
