ONICO Warszawa will completely change their appearance next season as they parted ways with the head coach Stéphane Antiga and six players.


Right after losing the 2018/19 Polish Championship finals to ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, ONICO Warszawa announced parting ways with the head coach Stéphane Antiga and six players from the current roster.

The existing two-year contract with the French expert will expire at the end of May and the team from the Polish capital does not intend to extend it. Thus, Antiga is free to pursue new challenges in his career. Under his guidance, ONICO played 66 official matches in the Polish Championship and Polish Cup, winning 44 and losing 22. Antiga might join ONICO’s big rivals next season.

Beside ending collaboration with the French coach, ONICO did the same with six players from the roster that brought the club a silver medal in the Plus Liga 2018/2019: middle blockers  - Canadian Graham Vigrass (231 points in 29 games) and Jan Nowakowski (74 points in 22 games), opposite hitters - Canadian Sharone Vernon-Evans (162 points in 33 games) and Maciej Muzaj (68 points in 4 games), Bulgarian outside hitter Nikolay Penchev (109 points in 8 games), and setter Konrad Buczek.

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
