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.

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
