The current Montenegrin Men’s Volleyball Championship winners Budva hired setter who competed in the Italian top division last season.

 

Budva, who won the Montenegrin Championship last season and will play the qualifications for the 2020 CEV Champions League, hired Dutch setter Wessel Keemink.

A 25-year-old player is coming from an Italian powerhouse Azimut Leo Shoes Modena in which he acted as a backup setter. Last season, Keemink won the Italian Super Cup and competed in the semifinals of the playoffs.

Besides the Dutch setter, Budva signed libero Ljubomir Popović from the home league rivals Jedinstvo Franca and extended with Serbian head coach Vladimir Vasović.

Interestingly, Budva claimed the national title, and also the national Cup, in the first year of their existence. Many might confuse this club with Budvanska Rivijera Budva, the most-titled Montenegrin Men’s Volleyball Club with 18 championship titles. But, Budvanska Rivijera Budva shut down in 2017 and the city decided to help to establish the new team to represent the city, a year later.

Of course you must show the video in the arena. Players and present fans must see the video evidence. Reply

If the challenge video is not shown in the stadium, then it leaves room for corruption to move in (some would argue it is already here). If a referee decision does not go your way, it is only natural you would want to see evidence as proof. Reply
