The men’s and women’s Russian volleyball championships will have strict regulations when it comes to the next season, imposed to protect all participants from the coronavirus.


Some clubs who’ll play the 2020/21 Superliga revealed the new regulations that will be applied as a precaution to reduce infection and spreading COVID-19.

First of all, persons arriving from regions that are most affected by COVID-19 or from abroad are to be isolated for a period of 14 days at home or at a training base if there are no risks for other persons. A condition for overcoming the isolation of individuals is the presence of repeated negative PCR tests.

As for matches themselves, the condition for admission of the team to the match is the presence of negative PCR tests of all participants not older than 48 hours prior to the date of the match. Supporting documents must be sent to the host club at least 24 hours before the match.

Thus, the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) became the first national federation to impose regulations against the coronavirus for the upcoming club season. Hopefully, other federations will follow its footsteps.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

As far as I know,turks gave up on recruiting vargas due to her marriage with a woman.Maybe this is why rich İstanbul clubs don't hire Egonu.


However what I didn't understand until yesterday is, if fenerbahçe can tolerate such players with, say, unusual preferences, then why it didn't change Vargas with Egonu.Again why they hired a 2nd class player, Busa,but not a better player such as Stysiak, Herbots etc..

Terzic has never been Fenerbahçe coach but 7/24 serbian n. team coach.All his decisions, preferences,actions are always parallel with serbia n. team's interests,not with fener's.Fener has 3 foreign athletes,all serbs,coincidence? The club must send him immediately. Otherwise fenerbahçe remains doomed to be the 3rd-5th team in home,and to be defeated in CL by vakıfbank, eczacıbası and by the italian team which has Egonu (presently Imoco I think)

Actually the problem is not special to Terzic,but to trainers coaching 2 teams.a national team other than turkish team and a club team. Federation would better ban clubs to hire such coaches. Reply
