It seems that problems in Argentine volleyball have moved from a standstill…


The Argentine Olympic Committee (COA) summoned the two confronted parties in Argentine volleyball to a dialogue table in its headquarters in Buenos Aires. The COA called President Juan Antonio Gutiérrez, one more official and Treasurer as representatives of the federation (FeVA), and Vice president Santiago Darraidou, Secretary, two legal representatives and national team players Facundo Conte, Luciano De Cecco, Julieta Lazcano and Yamila Nizetich in front of the Association of Argentine Volleyball Players (JuAVA).

The COA expressed concern about the conflict situation between the two parties that in the meantime became public. The JuAVA representatives repeated their demands which they revealed two months ago when addressing to the media and they are all related to the way FeVA leadership is conducted. The most of the discussion at the dialogue table was regarding the arrears to players for competing in the 2018 FIVB Nations League and fees for players’ transfers abroad that in some cases reached 30% in favor of FeVA.

FeVA officials promised players that they will receive the money until October 31. This occurred, as FeVA explained, due to problems they have with the current account between them and the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) which was closed on March 31. As for the transfer fee, FeVA officials stressed that their Board of Directors has done the first steps to reduce it and will proceed with its efforts.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
