ONICO Warszawa remained without one of their key players for the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinals!


Due to a back injury, Bartosz Kurek finished the season! It means that a famous opposite hitter will not be able to help his teammates in the Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff semifinals against Jastrzębski Węgiel which starts today.

Kurek has been struggling with the pain for a while. The medical tests have shown that it requires urgent treatment to prevent the injury from deepening which would cause risk to the athlete’s health.

As some media in Poland reported, ONICO are close to signing the best scorer of the national league Maciej Muzaj from Trefl Gdańsk (still has a valid contract with the club) as Kurek’s replacement. The PlusLiga rules allow special kinds of transfers outside the transfer window which is called the medical joker.

Bartosz Kurek had a surgery today. All went well but he won't be able to play for several months. Miss him already.. Get well soon, Bartosz!

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

Organisation of OG Qualification in Poland reminds me WCh2014 as far as a timetable, referees.. It is enough to compare all schedules of home NT with other qualification groups.. Poland NT is probably currently the strongest NT in men volleyball in the world, and it does not need any such a trick... Of course, it indicates also the role of FIVB, which is orientated mainly on a profit... Reply

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more. Reply
