They will shut down the club…no one will get one cent of the debt…no one will get sanctions…
Then after a while…they will organize the same club under a new name…

One is certain…we will see no money…
Nobody to protect us…
It’s a shame our sport doesn’t give same legal support to the players, as it is in football and basketball.

All this because team doesn’t have to deposite money before the start of the championship. This is volleyball reality… Sorry for players who stayed there the whole season and didn’t get their money. I wonder if it is the same situation with their managers?
