It seems that problems in Argentine volleyball have moved forward from a standstill…


The Argentine Olympic Committee (COA) summoned the two confronted parties in Argentine volleyball to a dialogue table in its headquarters in Buenos Aires. The COA called President Juan Antonio Gutiérrez, one more official and Treasurer as representatives of the federation (FeVA), and Vice president Santiago Darraidou, Secretary, two legal representatives and national team players Facundo Conte, Luciano De Cecco, Julieta Lazcano and Yamila Nizetich in front of the Association of Argentine Volleyball Players (JuAVA).

The COA expressed concern about the conflict situation between the two parties that in the meantime became public. The JuAVA representatives repeated their demands which they revealed two months ago when addressing to the media and they are all related to the way FeVA leadership is conducted. The most of the discussion at the dialogue table was regarding the arrears to players for competing in the 2018 FIVB Nations League and fees for players’ transfers abroad that in some cases reached 30% in favor of FeVA.

FeVA officials promised players that they will receive the money until October 31. This occurred, as FeVA explained, due to problems they have with the current account between them and the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) which was closed on March 31. As for the transfer fee, FeVA officials stressed that their Board of Directors has done the first steps to reduce it and will proceed with its efforts.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
