Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers prevailed in a marathon Game 1 of the 2017-2018 Korean men’s volleyball championship Dodram Variety League best-of-five playoff finals against Incheon Korean Air Jumbos.

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more. Reply
