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.

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Trentino should be fine to advance in the top 3 2nd place positions for Champions League quarterfinals. Hopefully this rest will help them. That win in Milano was impressive. Lube continues to look great and Juantorena is still playing at a high level. Reply
