After both clubs sent their opinion documents to FIVB in Lausanne, Switzerland, governing body of world volleyball made the decision which is published in one of the Korean news media.
The main issue of this conflict was which team Kim Yeon Koung belongs to, in other words which is her ‘Club of Origin’. Also, on the document that HK sent to FIVB, the Korean club requested the punishment for Fenerbahçe.
FIVB did not accept HK’s request and did not discovered Fenerbahçe’s intentional illegal actions, so Turkish club won’t be punished.
Here are the essential parts of the document of FIVB’s final decision.
1. The Korean Club is the Player’s “Club of Origin” for the 2013/2014 season.
2. The total amount of transfer fee(s) in favour of the Korean club and the Korean Volleyball Association for the transfer of the player to the Turkish club for the 2013/2014 season shall not exceed EUR 228,750. The player’s transfer to the Turkish club shall not be subject to any other or further restrictions of any kind.
3. After the 2013/2014 season the player shall be deemed to have no “Club of Origin”, unless a valid employment contract is signed between the player and any Korean club in accordance with the FIVB Regulations.
