The next season might bring several cases of volleyball clubs leaving their countries of origin to compete in others.


As our website exclusively learned, the five-time consecutive (six-time, if counting this season’s unofficial title) champions of Bulgaria, Maritza, will apply to compete in the Turkish top division next season! The reason for such a decision of the management of the Plovdiv team remained yet unknown.

During the day, the information that the 10-time German men’s champions Berlin Recycling Volleys will apply to compete in the Polish Championship appeared in the media. Kaweh Niroomand, the head of the club from the German capital admitted for Sport Onet that the possibility of playing in the PlusLiga was considered but that they officially applied for a license to play in the Bundesliga. This info stands on Berlin’s website as well.

However, there’s one foreign club that will move to the PlusLiga – the two-time consecutive Ukrainian champions VK Barkom-Kazhany. So far, there’s no denial nor confirmation from any of the sides involved in this “transfer“.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
