The Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation made a decision that will make transfer activities of the country’s volleyball teams and registration of players much easier.


The Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation harmonized its regulations with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) agreement and informed that athletes from the countries that are members of this organization will not be considered foreigners in Russian competitions in football, hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball, water polo and field hockey. The EAEU member states are Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

It was a result of the EAEU court ruling that said restrictions on the participation of athletes who are citizens of the EAEU in national sports competitions were inadmissible.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply
