EZUGWU Monica, the Local Management Committee (LMC), Chairman of the Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF), says the Federation has made a new amendment for transferring of players.

The chairman, who is also the second Vice President of the NVBF, said this was part of the efforts put in place to develop the game in the country.

According to her, the Federation meeting with the coaches and the Referees was based on the new amendments that have just come in.

“This new amendment was for all the volleyball clubs and the registrations, and the teams that will be relegated, and the clubs’ transfer that will be carried out.

“We were able to inform them that from the next 2023, there are going to be some fees that will be paid.

“Firstly, if a player is going to move from one club to another club, there will be charges to be paid, and the remuneration is going to be shared among the club, players, and the federation,” she said.

She said Referees had been encouraged to continue with their good work in terms of officiating to ensure that the players, and the spectators watching the game were satisfied with their officiating.

“We told the coaches to also prepare their players that they should all be well kitted, well dressed.

“The coaches are going to be seated at an expected position that is going to be given to them during the competition.

“All things have been put into consideration, and we have promised that this year, division one is going to come out with surprises,” she said.

The chairman said they also wanted to encourage the old clubs that they shouldn’t think that it’s going to be easy for them.

“The youth are very serious with the volleyball; they are going to surprise the old players.

“We are having a series of volleyball competitions across the country, and we want to ensure that if we travel out for an international tournament, the federation will be able to ensure victory,” she said.

On his part, Martin Menladi, the technical director of volleyball, said that they drew some fixtures for division one during the Technical meeting.

“The division one will commence today (Friday), starting with our first match in the female fixture this evening between the Chief of Naval Staff and Spartan Angels.

“We are starting with the female matches today because we want to finish the female match earlier to give the chief of naval staff enough days to prepare for the African championship on May 19.

“We have a total of 12 teams participating, six males and six females on the ground. We are going to start the male matches on Saturday,” he said.

NAN reports that NVBF moved the National Division One League from Bauchi to Abuja due to the visitation of Confederation of Africa Volleyball (CAVB) officials to Nigeria to access the level of volleyball development in the country.

NAN also reports that the National Division One League, which commenced at the indoor sports hall of Moshood Abiola National Stadium on May 13, will end on May 22. (NAN)
