The 2019/20 Polish Women’s Volleyball Championship newcomers Wisła Warszawa are sanctioned by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB).

 

Despite having high ambitions in the 2019/20 Liga Siatkówki Kobiet after winning the silver medal in the second division (I liga kobiet) last season, Wisła currently occupy the last place in the charts with 0-3. The main reason for this lies in the fact that they could not count on the trio of foreign players, Ukrainian Olena Novgorodchenko and Brazilians Joyce Silva “Joycinha” and Nikolle Corrêa “Niki Del Rio”, since the beginning of the season.

According to To Fly Volleyball, this is because Wisła were sanctioned by the FIVB for having problems in payments to the players in the 2018/19 season while they were still playing the second division. The punishment does not prevent the team from the Polish capital from playing but it does not allow them to have foreigners at the disposal until they resolve the economic issues. Wisła will likely be sanction-free sometime this month.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
