Itambé/Minas win the classic of the Minas Gerias state against Dentil/Praia Clube, valid for the last round of the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Club Championship in Uberlândia (Brazil), and maintained hegemony in the continent with three consecutive titles.

 

Minas dominated hosts Praia in the all-Brazilian duel of the 2020 Sudamericano de Clubes femenino to win the event for the fifth time, the third in a row (1999, 2000, 2018, 2019 and 2020).

In what turned out to be a decisive match of the last round between the two undefeated sides, the Belo Horizonte beat prevailed in the “clássico mineiro” by a 3-0 (25-22, 27-25, 25-16) at the Arena Sabiazinho, in Uberlândia. In addition, the victory of Minas guarantees them a direct ticket in the next edition of the FIVB Club World Championship that will be held at the end of the year. The squad coached by Italian Nicola Negro won the competition without losing a single set in all four games.

Argentinean side San Lorenzo secured a bronze medal yesterday.

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
