Spor Toto is, undoubtedly, the hit of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season!


The greatest hit of the Turkish male volleyball, probably of the volleyball in Europe in general, is Spor Toto. The team from Ankara took over the right to compete in the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season from Maliye Piyango and thus, they are making their debut in the country’s top division. And what a debut it is for now!

Spor Toto downed nine-time champions Halkbank at home by a 3-1 (13-25, 25-23, 30-28, 28-26) to come in first in the charts with 5-0 and 15 points. They are one of the three undefeated teams in the competition. On the other hand, Halkbank are closer to fighting for Efeler Ligi survival than fighting for a playoff spot (1-4).

Ugandan Daudi Okello had one more mighty performance (28 points) for Spor Toto. He is currently the top scorer of the league when it comes to the points per set (6.24) and third-best scorer overall (106 points). Metin Toy and Moldovan Dmitrii Bahov scored 19 points apiece for Halbank. Faik Samet Güneş made 5 kill blocks.

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

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
