The 2018/19 French Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists Poitiers are close to completely assemble their roster for the next season.


Poitiers gained one of the biggest world volleyball prospects at the moment, Micah Ma’a. A 22-year-old American player, currently competing in the 2019 FIVB Nations League with his country’s national team, has chosen the French Championship side to be the first club in his professional career. Ma’a, who can cover two positions that have nothing in common – setter’s and outside hitter’s – competed in the NCAA for the UCLA Bruins, a team at whose helm is the USA Men head coach John Speraw.

Earlier, Poitiers signed outside hitters - Florian Lacassie (SWD Powervolleys Düren, Germany) and Brazilian Chizoba Neves Atu (Pärnu VK, Estonia), and middle blockers - Iranian Ali Shafiei (Saipa Tehran, Iran) and Brazilian Gladstone Magalhães (G.A.S. Pamvochaikos, Greece).

VNL 2019 M: France end Iran’s 7-game winning streak, Australia beat Portugal in battle to avoid relegation

Some of the players from the Portuguese national team during the match would get a hard blow from me. When he served Alex Ferreira and the ball was passing to Portugal, they did terrible things.

VNL 2019 M: Poletaev and Leal make admirable attack success rates, leading Russia and Brazil to wins in Pool 16

What about scarse reception of Leal? Took 6 aces suring the match.... What about services mistakes? So he made 11 points in attack but gave away directly 8!!! Great score, 2 positive..... Reply
