The act of receiving Polish citizenship by the Iranian volleyball player Milad Ebadipour has raised a lot of discussions regarding his sports nationality...


The Iranian outside hitter Ebadipour has recently received Polish citizenship. Volleyball players usually decide to make such an act in order to gain the right to compete for the national team of the country whose citizenship they obtain, i.e. to change sports nationality.

However, according to volleyball.it, this isn’t the case with the 26-year-old player who has been a member of PGE Skra Bełchatów since 2017. Polish citizenship will only make it easier for Ebadipour to enter and leave the country, but it doesn’t change anything in terms of volleyball. He remains of Iranian sports nationality and will continue to play for the national team of his homeland. In Polish competitions, Ebadipour will still be counted as a foreign player.

But is this guaranteed by their National Associations or FIVB?

The Polish passport is nowadays stronger than Iranian one and makes it easier to travel across the world. He won't be competing as a Pole in PlusLiga, since he would have to revoke his desire to play for Iran and choose Poland instead. The interesting thing is that he got the citizenship after just 3 years of playing in Poland, pretty short time to get one.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
