Russia hasn’t officially left elite division of the WL and as „R-Sport“ writes, the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) is interested to allow this national team to continue playing in Group 1.
„The format of the World League is changing every year and the format for the next year hasn’t been determined yet. It’s unclear how many teams will participate in the tournament. I think it’s likely that the next season there will be different regulations in the World League. FIVB is interested and we are interested as well (that Russia should participate in the World League’s elite division). It’s necessary to wait for the announcement of the new regulations which will take place in autumn,“ – said the President of the Russian VF, Stanislav Shevchenko.
Recall, the Russians lost 11 out of 12 games this season in WL and became the worst among eight teams in Group 1.
If Russia stays in Group 1 it won’t be such a surprise if we know that, above all, the World League is a commercial competition.
