A year after men’s volleyball team Beşiktaş shut down, the women’s team will experience a similar fate.


As Turkish media reported, the country's women’s top division club Beşiktaş hasn’t done any work in composing the roster for the next season even though they avoided relegation to the lower rank due to the premature end of the season caused by the pandemic of COVID-19.

Media are sure that this is a clear sign that the Istanbul side won’t be competing in the 2020/21 Vestel Venus Sultanlar Ligi. The one-time Turkish Championship winners had problems last season, too, losing all the players from the roster at one moment due to economic difficulties. So, Beşiktaş continued playing with the players from their youth team.

A year ago, the men’s team of Beşiktaş shut down despite securing a place in the top division after being the runners-up in the 2018/19 second division.

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

As far as I know,turks gave up on recruiting vargas due to her marriage with a woman.Maybe this is why rich İstanbul clubs don't hire Egonu.


However what I didn't understand until yesterday is, if fenerbahçe can tolerate such players with, say, unusual preferences, then why it didn't change Vargas with Egonu.Again why they hired a 2nd class player, Busa,but not a better player such as Stysiak, Herbots etc..

Terzic has never been Fenerbahçe coach but 7/24 serbian n. team coach.All his decisions, preferences,actions are always parallel with serbia n. team's interests,not with fener's.Fener has 3 foreign athletes,all serbs,coincidence? The club must send him immediately. Otherwise fenerbahçe remains doomed to be the 3rd-5th team in home,and to be defeated in CL by vakıfbank, eczacıbası and by the italian team which has Egonu (presently Imoco I think)

Actually the problem is not special to Terzic,but to trainers coaching 2 teams.a national team other than turkish team and a club team. Federation would better ban clubs to hire such coaches. Reply
