The Indian Volleyball Federation (VFI) suffered a major financial blow.


The VFI lost a court case against the sports marketing agency and media company Baseline Venture, operating in Mumbai and New Delhi among other locations, which will cost them more than half a million US dollars.

After almost 10 months of hearings and submissions by both parties, the judge determined that the VFI wrongfully terminated the contract with Baseline Venture and dismissed the counter-claim of the governing body of volleyball in India. The VFI has been ordered to pay Rs 4 crores (about $ 540,500) as compensation and Rs 5 lakhs ($ 6,700) in legal fees. With that, an additional 12 % interest from the date of the beginning of arbitral proceedings to the date of payment. That sum is Rs 45 lakhs ($ 60,800) at the moment.

The Baseline Venture Vice-President described the judgment as “victory of fair play in Indian sport.“

FIVB, change the rule, please!

I agree with coach Kolakovic and the justifications he brings for changing this particular rule. I am convinced that most referees share his opinion too. Reply

Re: @Sorah
That is very stupid too, indeed. If we do a simple analysis we can find a lot of other very stupid things. Another one is uselessly continuing the set when the score difference is 10 points. Who has recovered from that? (I mean in the senior games, not in the underage games.)

Re: @Sorin Acela
The most stupid rule is each set has 25 points and teams only play serious game from point 15-16.
If sets had 15 or 11 points, they cared from first point, and didn't cause spectators to sleep. Reply
