The Turkish Women’s Volleyball titleholders VakıfBank welcomed Serbia National Team setter Maja Ognjenović on the club's website.


VakıfBank continued their transfer activities for the new season by contracting one of the best setters in the world Ognjenović.

Only a year ago, Serbia National Team member (the winner of the 2011 CEV EuroVolley /Best Setter/ and 2018 FIVB World Championship) waged fierce battles against her new team as she defended the colors of Eczacıbaşı VitrA.

The 35-year-old athlete spent the last season in the Russian side Dinamo Moscow and won the national championship. At the end of the season, she renewed the contract with the team from the Russian capital but requested it to be canceled in order to move to Vakıf. Dinamo agreed to meet Ognjenović’s demands, as the club General Director Vladimir Zinichev explained.

It's better to Carlini play in Vakifbank instead Ognjenović.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
