The record winners of the Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship, Eczacıbaşı VitrA, made the transfer of Jordan Thompson official.


Shaping the roster for the 2020/21 season, Eczacıbaşı has contracted U.S. National Team member Thompson. The 23-year-old opposite hitter played for Eczacıbaşı’s title rivals Fenerbahçe Opet last season, which was the first professional season in her career. Thompson had a major role in winning the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League of the USA Women.

The rumor of Thompson’s arrival at Eczacıbaşı has appeared more than a month ago. The other player with whom Thompson was about to come to the Istanbul team in a package, her compatriot Chiaka Ogbogu, hasn’t yet signed.

In addition to Thompson, Eczacıbaşı announced two more transfers: of the teenage setter Elif Şahin (Karayolları) and another youngster Merve Atlıer (officially, back from a loan in Karayolları). The club officially parted ways with American setter Carli Lloyd (will likely go to Èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore, Italy) and middle blocker Ergül Eroğlu (Galatasaray HDI Sigorta).

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
