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).

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
