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.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
