The last round of the 2018/19 German men’s volleyball championship regular season determined the top three seeds for the playoffs.


VfB Friedrichshafen defeated SVG Lüneburg by a 3-1 (22-25, 26-24, 25-20, 25-20) in Round 22 to retain the first place in the 1. Bundesliga Männer 2018/19 for the playoff quarterfinals. Knowing that the next two sides that followed current vice-champions in the regular season standings prior to this round, HYPO TIROL AlpenVolleys Haching, and BERLIN RECYCLING Volleys, also noted victories, the order of the top three teams did not change.

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
