The 2018/19 South Korean Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists, Seoul Woori Card Wibee, changed the foreigner for the second time although the new season has not started yet.

 

The 31-year-old Brazilian opposite hitter Felipe Banderó will play his third successive season in Korea after he signed with Seoul Woori Card Wibee. Banderó is the third foreign name that joined the team from the Korean capital in the summer transfer window. Contracts of the other two were canceled soon after they were signed.

Knowing that Korean Championship rules allow only one foreigner per team, it organizes the tryout and a draft at the end of each season in order to fill in the spot on the roster with international players. This summer, Woori decided to renew the deal with Liberman Agámez but were forced to seek his replacement due to injury of the Colombian. The American Jake Langlois came instead of Agámez but he also did not stay long in the club.

Banderó was presented by Woori at the league’s opening ceremony in Incheon. Last season, he competed for Uijeongbu KB Insurance Stars, while he wore the jersey of Suwon Korea Electric Power Corporation Vixtorm in the 2017/18 season.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
