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.

Re: @1 Correct, and more importantly, Boskovic, the best opposite in a world plays for Serbia. Hence Brakocevic decided to quit national team instead of sitting on the bench

Re: @Petar
She quit the national team to spend more time with her son if I remember correctly. It was never an issue of quality, she is still a top player. Reply
