According to the Polish media, Trefl Gdańsk will enter the next season highly weakened.

 

Firstly, the speculations of a departure of Mika and Schulz from the club have appeared.  And, if it was not enough, names of the three more players that might leave Trefl at the end of the season were mentioned.

Allegedly, an outside hitter Artur Szalpuk, Canadian setter TJ Sanders, and U.S. middle blocker Daniel McDonnell are heading toward the exit doors of Trefl! Szalpuk will return to PGE Skra Bełchatów, while the new destination of the North American duo is still unknown.

But, not everything is black for the Gdańsk side. A prospect outside hitter Tomasz Fornal from Cerrad Czarni Radom is projected to replace Szalpuk, while experienced middle blocker Piotr Nowakowski will likely renew his contract.

Recall that Trefl had many difficulties with finances before the season.

What`s going on there? They are going so well this season and could end up winning it all. So why is everyone leaving?

Re: @Kaplan
They don't have as much money, as they want to have. Sponsors don't come to the club with big money like Lotos did. I'm surprised about this situation, but maybe Anastasi will find better replacements, who knows. About Fornal - he extended contract with Czarni Radom, so he don't come to Gdańsk

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.
