Ricardo Calvo won’t be organizing the attack of the record Slovenian men’s volleyball Championship winners, ACH Volley Ljubljana, after all.


The ex-Cuba National Team setter Calvo won’t wear the jersey of ACH volley in 2020/21 despite signing the contract with the Slovenian side. This occurred because of the impossibility of issuing a visa for which the ongoing coronavirus situation is to be blamed. So, the club and the player agreed to terminate the contract.

ACH Volley turned to another solution and brought the country’s national team member Gregor Ropret. The 31-year-old player has already worn the jersey of the team from the Slovenian capital (2011-2014), while he spent the last season in France’s Nantes Rezé. He was supposed to stay in France and strengthen Rennes. However, the fact that they are likely to be demoted to the second division due to financial irregularities made Ropret giving up on moving there.

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.
