After winning the 2017 Men’s Volleyball CEV Cup, French side Tours Volley-Ball turned to making plans for the next season.


As we already wrote, Tours parted ways with German middle blocker Philip Collin who returned to his homeland. It did not take much for reigning CEV Cup champions to find his replacement.

As „L’Équipe“ reported, Tours agreed terms with Dutch Jasper Diefenbach from French Championship (Ligue A Masculine) rivals Nantes Rezé Métropole Volley. Diefenbach is one of the highlights in French league this season, becoming the best scorer in his position.

Tours also formalized the one-year contract extensions with Italian coach Giampaolo Medei and Canadian receiver Ryley Barnes.

TURNAROUND: FIVB awards last wild card for 2017 Club World Championship to Dinamo!

It is all about entrance 'fees': because Moscow has more money than Conegliano and the last couldn't or didn't want to pay those 100.000 US $, Moscow took over. If this is the right way to distribute the (too?) many (4) wildcards, everybody should decide on his own. Reply
