The five-time Turkish men’s volleyball Championship winners Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta signed two new names, both of Canadian nationality, and nearly finished composing their roster for the 2020/21 season.


In the new season, Fenerbahçe will enter with the two Canada National Team members. Both spent the last season in Poland. The outside hitter Nicholas Hoag (two-time NORCECA Championship MVP) came from Asseco Resovia Rzeszów, while middle blocker Graham Vigrass (one-time FIVB Volleyball Nations League Best Middle Blocker) came from Jastrzębski Węgiel.

Fenerbahçe made a couple of more signings official: setter Caner Pekşen (İstanbul BBSK) and opposite hitter Metin Toy (Halkbank).

The Istanbul side renewed with middle blockers Emre Batur and Hasan Sıkar, brought back middle blocker Halil İbrahim Kurt from a loan in Sorgun Bld., and promoted as many as five teenagers from a youth team into the senior team: outside hitters Ahmetcan Büyükgöz, Bora Jozef Stanicki, and Taha Erden, libero Doruk Daioğlu, and middle blocker Serhat Fatih Uzun.

I was watching both Resovia and Jastrzebski matches last season of PlusLiga and as for Graham it's a very good middle blocker and I consider this a good move from Fenerbahce.

As for Nicholas, he spent almost entire season on bench and was a main service target while playing, maybe he will get better this season but Fenerbahce can't really be sure about this.

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.
