The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) suspended three players from Romania for betting in the volleyball match in January in which their team was involved!

 

Three Romanian players, Alexandru Muscină (jersey No.12 on the photo), Alexandru Cerşemba (jersey No.6 on the photo) and Andrei Ursache, all members of CS Arcada Galați at the time, bet on the 2nd leg of the 16th Finals of the 2017 CEV Cup between their club and Serbian side Vojvodina NS Seme Novi Sad, on January 4.

Since they knew that Arcada will be highly weakened for the rematch, Muscină and Cerşemba proposed Ursache to use his card at „Betfair“ to make an online betting against their club. Since the FIVB gets an alert through the CIOs software whenever some of the players from its database try to bet, it caught them in an attempt to benefit from the volleyball match.

„We received a document from the International Volleyball Federation last month which informed us that Alexandru Muscină, Alexandru Cerşemba, and Andrei Ursache are temporarily suspended for manipulating results of the game. Still, a making of the final decision will be a bit delayed“ Gheorghe Vişan, the President of the Romanian Volleyball Federation (FRV), said for „Gazeta Sporturilor“.

„If the decision remains final, the three players risk one of the most drastic sanctions in sport, more severe than in football. The FIVB Regulations sets a fine of 50,000 to 150,000 euros and a suspension for at least five years for fixing the results of the matches. And if they get a lower fine, they still won’t be able to pay the entire amount, so they will no longer be able to play volleyball“ a source from the FRV explained.

TUR M: Konarski – „Watching PlusLiga games now, I think this season would be tiring for me“

Also has something about his paycheck. He has to accept the 400 Ziraat offered of course! Lets be honest and stop the hipocrisy. Players have to get the best they can from their carreer. So why not play in a weak tournament but earn twice what you would being home?? Congrats to the best decision Konarsky has ever made in his entire carreer Reply

RUS W: Goncharova – “I feel more confident because coach Terzic makes me feel that way”

Re: @Vadim
Vakifbank risks with their service and is still considered the strongest club in the world. Alekno made the biggest risk of them all by putting Muserskiy to opposite and Mikhailov to outside attacker in the London Olympics while still considered the best in their original positions...So how is that risk is bad? Players need to master and overcome the risk to not call it anymore as risk. Reply
