Volleybal is something we are successful in women (seniors and juniors) but not that much in men (way to go for you boys).

Last year Turkish women volleyball league was the srongest in the World as depicted by Ze Roberto, Brazil national team and FB Acıbadem SK coach, the top 3 Turkish team would target championship in any league in the World. Because of that strength we see many World stars playing here in Turkey.

Turkey loses Worlds wild card to Italy


Turkey lost its chance to win a wild card spot at the women’s Volleyball World Cup because of lobbying, the chairman of the Turkish Volleyball Federation has said.

The federation applied to world volleyball’s governing body after Turkey finished third at the recent European Championship with request that they be granted a wild card spot at the global event, Erol Ünal Karabıyık told Anatolia news agency.

The wild card, however, was granted to Italy, which will go directly to the World Cup. Turkey twice beat Italy in the recent tournament – the second game securing a third-place finish and winning Turkey a bronze medal.

“It is only a question of lobbying. We did our best, but it didn’t happen,” Karabıyık said.

Playing in the World Cup is important because it would give the team a chance to compete in next year’s Olympics in London, the chairman said.

 

Italy do not deserve it. We beat them twice in the last championship.

Legendary win for Arkas IZMIR to bring Turkey to top four in Europe
2012 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men

Izmir, Turkey, March 1, 2012. The very first men’s Volleyball team from Turkey able to take a European trophy – it was back in 2009 –, Arkas IZMIR, wrote another memorable chapter of its saga tonight by qualifying for the final four of the 2012 CEV Volleyball Champions League scheduled for March 17-18 in Lodz, Poland, and play there in the semifinals the hosts of PGE Skra BELCHATOW. After losing last week in straight sets to Lokomotiv NOVOSIBIRSK, tonight the guys of Arkas stormed back to score first a 3:2 win (25-27, 18-25, 25-22, 25-23, 16-14) and then take the deciding golden set with the score of 15-11.
Arkas IZMIR lived up to its fame for being a team that does not surrender in any circumstances and stormed back from two sets down (25-27, 18-25) after clearly feeling the pressure for what was an all-or-nothing mission. Helped by some 5’000 fans in attendance at “Karsiyaka” hall, Arkas clipped the next three sets with Colombian Liberman Agamez amassing an incredible haul of 38 points along the way to the final 3:2. Then Agamez set the pace also in the golden set and Arkas added another chapter to its unique story after taking the trophy of the Challenge Cup in that same venue 3 years ago.
This is another great achievement also for Canadian head coach Glenn Hoag who won Europe’s most elitist competition at the helm of France’s PARIS Volley back in 2001 and two years ago had qualified for the final four while mentoring Slovenia’s sensation ACH Volley BLED.

Yellow angels of Fenerbahce to challenge RC CANNES for classy final match

 

Baku, Azerbaijan, March 24, 2012. Two years after losing the final match to Italy’s Volley BERGAMO, Fenerbahce Universal ISTANBUL will be vying again for the trophy of Europe’s most elitist league after the stellar group mentored by Zé Roberto edged Dinamo KAZAN of Russia (3:1; 17-25, 25-23, 25-17, 25-18) in the second semifinal played at “Heydar Aliyev” Sports and Concert Complex in Azerbaijan’s capital city. After losing, and quite clearly, the opening set to the ladies from Tatarstan, the “yellow angels” displayed some world-class and magic Volleyball to challenge RC CANNES in the deciding act of the competition, which will be a remake of the classy semifinal claimed by the Turks back in 2010 at “Palais des Victoires” as the French Riviera was playing host to the final four.  
 

The close connection between Azerbaijan and Turkey is well known as the official languages of these countries are so similar that their respective citizens can easily understand each other while using their own idioms. Therefore it was not a real surprise to see the “Heydar Aliyev” Sports and Concert Complex in Baku getting gradually crowded by the fans of Fenerbahce, all wearing their yellow scarves or other gadgets produced by one of the most popular and successful multi-sports clubs in the world. The players from Turkey’s metropolis, Istanbul, had crashed the dreams of the local heroines representing Rabita BAKU in the 1/4 finals of the CEV Volleyball Champions League but still they were going to enjoy the full support of the Azeri audience in their semifinal match with Dinamo KAZAN. On the other side of the net, the Tatars – a rookie in Europe’s premier league – around Ekaterina Gamova had the ambitious goal to double up the victory of their friends from the men’s club of Zenit in last week’s final four in Lodz, something that would turn Kazan into the real Volleyball “Mecca” of the Old Continent. A small group of fans had traveled from Tatarstan to Azerbaijan’s capital city too, while Dinamo was going to be supported also by its mascot, a ladybird, which was standing next to the court already before the start of the game.

Well, there must be a reason for it. You now we have a tournament ahead for Olympics qualification and it´s a tight schedule. If they were to make it "first to win 3 games would win" then they need to plan for 5 games (worst case 3-2 rather than 3-0 ).
