Breaking news! According to the latest info, the Russian Volleyball Federation is willing to send special invitations to Volero Zurich, Rabita Baku and Azerrail Baku to participate in the 2017/18 Russian Championship!
Volero Zurich (champions of Switzerland), Azerrail Baku (champions of Azerbaijan) and Rabita Baku (vice-champions of Azerbaijan) suffer a lot from having only a few high-quality games in their domestic leagues during the season, while they are all regular Champions League participants.
That is why the Russian Volleyball Federation came up with this idea from which everyone can benefit.
“We are in advanced talks with two teams from Azerbaijan and with Volero Zurich about their participation in the Russian Championship in the next season. The question we need to solve is how to fit all games into a calendar which would be suitable for all team. Still, I would like to see Rabita, Azerrail and Volero in the 2017/18 Russian Championship,” said Vladislav Fadeev the coordinator of the women’s volleyball national team of Russia.
