The rising power of the Russian men’s volleyball Championship, Zenit Saint-Petersburg, signed a contract with the French setter Antoine Brizard.


It was practically only a matter of formality given that media predicted this transfer two months ago – the France National Team setter Brizard became the new member of Zenit St. Petersburg. The 26-year-old player came to the Russian side from Poland’s VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa in which he spent the last three seasons.

Brizard is a backup to Benjamin Toniutti in the France National Team for which he has been competing since 2017 and won the FIVB Volleyball Nations League that exact year. At the very beginning of his professional career, Brizard won the CEV Cup and French Championship, both in 2014, with Paris. He was awarded Best Setter at the 2011 FIVB U19 World Championship.

Thus, Brizar became the second newcomer in Zenit in the offseason. Earlier, the Russian club signed a contract with the country’s national team member Viktor Poletaev.

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.
