This is the announcement of the club:
“The main reason is that we have a busy schedule for the whole season but also because we don’t have a sporting title that will send us to this competition. The teams with three titles are the European champion (Zenit Kazan), the champion of South America (Sada Cruzeiro) and the champion of Asia (Sarmayeh Volleyball Club). The other five places are assigned exclusively to anyone who pays a registration fee to an advertising agency in Warsaw, which is the private organizing company, and not to FIVB. So the only right that is worth is the economic one and this system of “qualification” contrasts with the principle that should be pivotal and that is the sporting one.
The company considers it convenient to invest its resources by participating in events that it deserves to take part in and this year will be many and very important both in Italy and in Europe. Events that will require, from the technical staff and players, commitment and sacrifice, attention and concentration. And it does not consider strategic to spend money and energy towards the so-called world club, which, organized in this way, loses a bit of charm because it is reserved to a minimum part to those who have sporting rights and more to those who buy economic rights exclusively by paying a tariff. Perugia hopes that in the future it will be considered the idea of organizing this event in a meritocratic way and where teams that are present for their merits and who do not pay participation fees will challenge each other.”
