Croatian men’s volleyball clubs have brought some big names for the 2020/21 season.


The legendary Croatia National Team member, a 39-year-old opposite hitter Igor Omrčen, interrupted his one-year retirement!

Described by many as the best Croatian volleyball player ever has joined OK Split, a club in which he started his career. Omrčen, the winner of three Italian Championships, four Italian Cups, two Italian Super Cups, and one Japanese Championship, as well as two-time Best Scorer of the CEV European League, has retired a year ago.

In an interview for our website, Omrčen explained the reasons for such a decision.

Serbian Konstantin Čupković will also be playing in Croatia in 2020/21. A 33-year-old outside hitter reinforced the country’s record holders for league titles (19), HAOK Mladost.

Tours, whose jersey he wore when he was awarded the MVP of the 2018/19 French Championship, was also a club for which Čupković played last season.

Both players already made their debuts for their new clubs in the Croatian Cup.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
