Perugia will not participate at World Club Championship

by WoV

The Italian champions, Sir Safety Perugia will not participate in the next World Club Championship, reports the club's website.

Sir Safety Perugia


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.”

Bravo for Sirci and Perugia. I hope other teams followed the suite and stop paying for access to so-called ‘elite’ tournament

Re: @former_player

I dont care ur opinion August 29, 2018 - 9:06 pm

I see people here saying ‘Bravo circi’ ‘well done’ the thing is he expend like 1,2 millions euros on Leon only hahahahaha and pay many more to keep atanasijevic and cant afford a trip to Poland, people wake up, he knows he is not gonna win, so he keeps his money instead of throw it for nothing, Civitanova will smash his team hard and in europe he will miss the champions league finals again. When his advisors told him that Civitanova would get invited to he jump out from his chair and realize that its to soon to fight hard vs Civitanova. we will see what happen in SuperCup.

Re: @I dont care ur opinion It’s not about money, it’s about principle. I highly doubt he paid 1,2 million for Leon for starters, and a trip to Poland who is around the corner from Italy is not something he will lose his sleep over. It is obvious that you don’t like Atanasijevic since he has nothing to do with this topic. Volleyball became a sport like a soccer where money rules above everything. He is making the point about that.
