Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass entered the playoff finals in the Korean women’s volleyball league (Dodram 2018-2019 V League) for the second consecutive season.

 

The second seed Korea Expressway Corporation Hi-Pass bounced back from 0-2 against No.3 GS Caltex Seoul Kixx in a decisive Game 3 of the playoff semifinals in V League – 3-2 (19-25, 21-25, 25-16, 25-14, 15-11). The fact that all three games ended with a tie-break show how difficult this semifinal matchup was.

GS Caltex bravely held today knowing the fact that their best scorer Aliona Martiniuc was once again unable to play. The Moldovan opposite sustained a knee injury prior to Game 2. Prospect outside hitter Kang So-Hwi took the role of the leader for GS Caltex, scoring 27 points. Senegalese Fatou Diouck highlighted for Expressway with 26 points, waving her ex-club on departure from the playoffs.

In the finals, Expressway will face top seed Hungkuk Life Pink Spiders. The last time these two met for the championship title was 13 years ago. The series will start on March 21.

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).
