The Polish men’s volleyball powerhouse Trefl Gdańsk won’t be playing in European cups next season.


Despite taking the fifth position in the 2019/20 PlusLiga standings, which gave them the right to compete in European club competitions next season, the Trefl management decided to reject such an opportunity.

Two-time Polish Cup and one-time Polish Super Cup winners received an invitation from the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) to play two European cups - the CEV Cup and the Challenge Cup. The reason for not accepting it is the coronavirus epidemic.

According to the Trefl President, Dariusz Gadomski, the risk of participating in European cups appears on many levels – from countries to which they were about to travel, and some are more severely struck by the epidemic than the others, to the risk of matches being canceled or the obligation to go to the quarantine. The head of Trefl stressed that the matter of finances stands on the way of competing internationally, too.

Recall that Trefl made of the biggest transfer hits in the world this summer – signing Mariusz Wlazły.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
