The winner of the men’s volleyball tournament at the Rio Olympics with the Brazil National Team, the 36-year-old Felipe Fonteles “Lipe“, will play in Japan again after 11 years.


According to Gian Luca Pasini, the 2016 Rio Olympic Games winner Lipe will strengthen Japan’s titleholders JTEKT Stings in which he’ll replace Bulgarian Matey Kaziyski.

The veteran outside hitter spent the last season in his home country, wearing the jersey of EMS Taubaté Funvic, and will return to playing in Japan after 11 years (the Panasonic Panthers 2007 – 2009, won the national title in 2008).

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
