The reigning champions of the Japanese men’s volleyball league, the JTEKT Stings, signed a former Brazil National Team member Felipe Fonteles “Lipe“.


It’s official now: The Stings announced the arrival of Lipe to their ranks for the 2020/21 season by which the rumor of the transfer was confirmed.

This will be a return of the 2016 Rio Olympics winner to the Japanese V.League after 11 years. During his previous stay in this Asian country, Lipe won the championship title with the Panasonic Panthers (2008).

A 36-year-old outside hitter, a one-time Polish Championship MVP and CEV Champions League Best Server, spent the last season in his home country, wearing the jersey of EMS Taubaté Funvic.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
