After suffering the 10th loss in the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Championship regular season the management of Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta decided to terminate the contract with as many as 5 players


After a 3-1 defeat against Bosca San Bernardo Cuneo in Round 12 of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season, the management of Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta decided to terminate contracts with as many as 5 players! It’s such a radical move that can’t be seen often in professional volleyball. The players that paid the price of Caserta’s poor results (2-10; penultimate place in the charts) this season are the captain Marta Bechis, Puerto Rican Áurea Cruz, American Rhamat Alhassan, Canadian Alexa Gray, and Austrian Katharina Holzer. They will be replaced with players from the “B” team that competes in the fifth division (Serie C).

Imoco Volley Conegliano justified the role of the favorite against the home side of Il Bisonte Firenze: 3-0 (25-21, 25-16, 25-23). Paola Egonu top-scored for the world champions with 17 points, while Chiaka Ogbogu made 5 kill blocks. The Dutch Nika Daalderop scored 15 points for the losing side.

The vice-leaders Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio recorded the 8th successive triumph (10th including the CEV Cup), while fourth-placed Savino Del Bene Scandicci were confident against Banca Valsabbina Millenium Brescia.

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
