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 player 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.

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.
