2 teams from Germany? That can`t happen as they are too weak. And only 2 from Turkey?? What a JOKE.

Re: @Troy you are right, that the distance in budget and strength is rather big behind the top three of Turkey, Russia and Italy before Germany, but Germany is supposed to be anyway the fourth best women's league in Europe, so the order is correct. That they can hardly finance the CL participation is a pity. And yes, Turkey should get one slot more to ensure participation of all four big Istanbul clubs in CL.

Polish Club didn't participate in CEV Cup and Challenge cup in recent 2 years. As the result, ranking of Polish League in this list fell sharply although the Polish League is actually regarded as the third strongest league in Europe.

Re: @Polemam
Do you happen to know why they declined to particIpate? The polish league (womens) seems to have lost ground compared to the other strong national championhips. Is there a shortage of money? Even a strong polish side like Rzeszow was soundly beaten by Alba Blaj in this year's CEVCL. Thanks!

Re: @Xhosa
What I'm saying is not a women but a men's league. It's fact that the biggest reason Polish club didn't recently participate in CEV Cup and Challenge cup was financial problem. If Polish clubs had competited in not only Champions League but also CEV Cup and Challenge cup, Polish men's league could be the third place in CEV ranking now.

The Polish league advanced 3 teams to the Playoff-12 each year in the Champions League. On the other hand Turkey, Belgium, France and Germany were not like that. So I'm certain that Polish men's league the third strongest league in Europe behind Russian and Italia league.

In men's volleyball, Poland league is apparently stronger than that of France, Belgium and Germany. I think the CEV ranking can't reflect exact power of each league.

Polish clubs must participate in CEV & Challenge cup for reclaiming their position in future.

VNL M: Italy get rude awakening from Australia, Brazil and Poland suffer 3 defeats in a row!

I dont think people understand how affected this Brazilian team was affected by the negative news from their Government on pulling funding from sports teams and athletics in the country. it was a punch in the gut from a country that already is reeling with issues. Bruno was the one who publicly called the government out. Clearly he is affected. Its a darn shame. Reply

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
