The President of Jastrzębski Węgiel admitted that it’s not possible that the Polish club will play the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League even in case it resumes.

 

Jastrzębski President Adam Gorol said for Polsat Sport that there’s no chance that the club will rejoin the Champions League even if it would be resumed at a later date. According to the decision of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV), all competitions under its jurisdiction are postponed until further notice due to coronavirus pandemic.

“The prevailing epidemic of coronavirus meant that we had to contact CEV at the beginning of March. At the time, I was fighting for our team not to go to Italy for the quarterfinal match (against Itas Trentino). I must admit that it was a great battle. As we know, ultimately we didn’t go to this match. We’re still in touch with the European federation. There’s no final decision, it’s to appear at the beginning of April. However, I know that it will be impossible for us to play this edition of the Champions League. The players are already leaving, there’s no training,“ the head of the club said.

Gorol added that the only solution would be to extend the next edition of the Champions League with Jastrzębski because this edition of the competition likely won’t be completed and he will suggest this to the CEV.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
