Iranian Men’s Volleyball team Shahrdari Urmia still did not pay arrears to four of its former members, all foreigners, despite the fact that two months are gone since the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) urged the situation to be resolved.


In mid-September, the FIVB warned Urmia that it will start a legal procedure against them if they fail to fulfill two-year-old financial obligations to former players Dragan Travica and Olli-Pekka Ojansivu, the head coach Ljubomir Travica and fitness coach Andrea Pozzi until the end of the month.

However, the warning and previously imposed sanctions by the FIVB did not take effect on the Iranian powerhouse. Yes, Urmia were unable to hire foreign players but were re-admitted to the national championship and regularly started the season. The next step, if all the others that were taken don’t force Urmia to pay arrears to the quartet of its ex-members, is to put pressure on the Iranian Volleyball Federation (IRIVF), who allowed Urmia to compete in the 2019/20 Super League, to resolve the situation.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
