Galatasaray HDI Sigorta disappointed their numerous fan base by setting off the 2021/22 Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship on the wrong foot.
After disappointing their fans by not making it to the playoffs after more than a decade last season, Galatasaray HDI Sigorta showed this season will be a struggle for top positions as well as they lost to PTT at the start of the new season in the Misli.com Sultanlar Ligi: 1-3 (19-25, 21-25, 25-21, 19-25). Bahar Akbay and Bulgarian Emiliya Dimitrova scored 13 points apiece for the club sponsored by the state post office.
The two most-titled Sultanlar Ligi participants who vied for the Super Cup a few days ago, Eczacıbaşı Dynavit and VakıfBank, earned three points each as they beat Nilüfer Bld. and Yeşilyurt respectively.
