The following teams applied for a license for season 2016/17:
[...]
VC Bitterfeld-Wolfen (new)
VC Olympia Berlin (new, youth academy team of german federation)
TSG Solingen Volleys (new, first successor, in case one team won't get awarded a license)

Sorry TimHH, I have to correct you.
The VBL has a nominal of 12 teams.
Last year there have been 11 teams, 1 of them (Coburg) was expelled due to license violations (rumors say they are bankrupt).
Makes 10. Therefore no team had to go down to 2nd division.

Solingen and Bitterfeld were promoted but Bitterfeld resigned shortly after (end of April) due to financial problems.
Until now it's again 11 teams PLUS VCO Berlin (the basis of the junior national team) which ALWAYS goes extra (on top of the 12).

Solingen was qualified as 1st ranked team of the 2nd division north, whereas Bitterfeld was the runner up.
From 2nd division south no team (1st Fellbach, 2nd Eltmann, 3rd Hammelburg) wanted to be promoted (mostly also financial reasons).

But anyway: thanks for all your informative posts and the new thread for next season.

CV Mitteldeutschland will play 2nd division next season. http://www.volleyballer.de/news/29336.html

At least, they don't give up completely. They were working on thin ice all through the last years, and so thats probably a reasonable decision. 2nd league is not the end of the world and hopefully they can regain forces and attack first league again after a little break. Still remember the great battles between them (Dürrenberg/Spergau) and Oststeinbek. :box:

Bühl's transfers look promising so far, in deed. :thumbup:

By the way, now with finger staying in Friedrichshafen, does that mean that Malescha will stay in Herrsching? And where will Herrsching play their play-off matches in next season? Unterhaching? That would probably be to Yavor's delight....

That's EXACTLY the point: Heynen promised to Malescha not to sit on the bench. With this argument Malescha signed. Now I wonder how he will keep his promise.
And the situation about the playoffs is not clear yet.

Well, it is going to be tough for Malescha for sure, but not a "mission impossible" as well. Finger still has to prove that he can be a reliable starting opposite in an ambitious club, although, on first view, he might be a bit further in development than Malescha. Hope it turns out well for Malescha though. We are not exactly rich of talented youngsters in Germany.....

VBL Team Rosters

Like last season, I will try to summarize the rosters of all teams, one after the other.
I'm sure that one or another transfer is still to come. In that case I will edit the post.

I will note nationality and club of newly transferred players next to the name.
For German players, no nationality is stated.
Transfers not yet confirmed are written in italic letters.

Please feel free to comment. :read:

As Mote got heavily injured during World League, I think they have to look for another middle. Also to be competitive on international level, one additional outside with international experience is needed. Let's see ...
