Eczacıbaşı VitrA defeated Nilüfer Belediyespor at home by a 3-1 (25-16, 16-25, 25-18, 25-14) in the second round of the 2019/20 Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Unlike the first-round match against Beylikdüzü Voleybol İhtisas, the head coach of Eczacıbaşı VitrA, Marco Aurélio Motta, used all weapons that he has at disposal, which means that stars like Bošković, Kim and Gibbemeyer made their debuts in the 2019/20 Vestel Venus Sultanlar Ligi. The Brazilian expert even tried a little experiment by moving Melis Durul from an opposite to the outside hitter’s position. Serbian Tijana Bošković was the top scorer of the game with 23 points (4 kill blocks), while Beyza Arıcı made 5 kill blocks. As for Nilüfer, Belgian Hélène Rousseaux scored 14 points.

The Greek newcomer to Galatasaray HDI Sigorta from Lardini Filottrano (Italy), Anthi Vasilantonaki, led her team to a straight-set win against Karayolları.

Despite playing without two very important players like Robinson and Vargas (she was in protocol unlike the first round match), Fenerbahçe Opet swept Beşiktaş. Recall that Vargas’ Instagram was, allegedly, hacked this summer and those who took over her profile wrote that she will no longer wear the jersey of the “Yellow Angels”.

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.
