The ex-Puerto Rico Women’s Volleyball National Team member Áurea “Aury” Cruz became the first foreign player to compete in the newly formed US Pro League.


Cruz announced on the social networks that she had decided to sign with the Athletes Unlimited, who’s in charge of organizing the new US professional league. Thus, for now, she became the first foreign player to compete in the tournament that’s to start at the beginning of 2021. This means that a veteran outside hitter will return to playing in the country in which she practically started her career: 17 years ago, she finished her collegiate career at Florida University and embarked among professionals.

The 38-year-old Cruz wore the jersey of the two clubs last season: Italy’s Golden Tulip Volalto 2.0 Caserta and Amazonas de Trujillo Alto in her home country.

See the full list of players whose names are so far confirmed to compete in the US Pro League.

Probably the most retarded sport federation in the whole of Europe, full of grandpas like Boričić making proft without any useful deeds. Another 4 frutiful years of stealing the clubs money. Taking a look at the CEV website layout says it all. Reply
