The premature ending of the club volleyball season in Brazil due to coronavirus pandemic forced some clubs to start their activities in the transfer market for the next season.


According to Bruno Voloch from Estadão Esportes, the unofficial Superliga Feminina runners-up Itambé Minas intensified actions for bringing in a powerful player on the position of the opposite hitter.

The club world champions aim the best scorer of the Italian side Zanetti Bergamo (315 points), Malwina Smarzek. But, since two more clubs in Brazil (names unknown yet) showed intense interest in the Polish player, Minas turned their attention to the 2019 U.S. Player of the Year, Andrea Drews, who finished the season as the MVP of the Japanese Championship.

Either way, it seems that the Belo Horizonte team will certainly part ways with at least one opposite hitter from the current roster - Sheilla Castro or Bruna Honório, but will extend with middle blocker Thaísa.

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
