  • Shabovta, do you know where I ca find infos about your league? I'd like to know which teams won this competition last years, which teams won national cups and Supercup if you have these competitions (I don't know if you play national cup and Supercup). On Wikipedia I found nothing about...
    Thank you!

  • Just wait a bit. I will help you with everything. Our new site is coming soon.


    http://www.azerivolley.com

    And thanks for that you are interested in our league!

  • Hi Shabovta!
    I see Azeri league was very interesting this year but I must ask you this: aren't you concerned about so many foreign players? Some teams were made up by 90% of non-Azeri ones. I'd like to know about the background of volleyball over there.
    Is there any politics on volleyball's development in basis levels and will there be any restriction on the number of foreigners for the next leagues? How have junior and young NT teams been?

  • Dear Elcioj, i am really very glad that you all are interested in Azeri league! The politics about volleyball in Azerbaijan is quite different than in any other countries. I can say that we love volleyball more than all other sports,cause we can call volley Sport number one in Azerbaijan.
    Azerbaijan used to have olympic champions like Inna Riscal,Vera Lantratova which were the leaders of USSR team. They are all Azeri born Russian,Ukrainian and other USSR countires players. You know the reason is natural Azeri girls are not so tall,that`s why we can not say that we have many natural Azeri girls in volleyball. But we have very many young players,which we hope grow up high level players.
    And if we don`t have enough potential with our natural Azeri girls,it does not mean that we have to refuse volleyball that we love so much!
    Many times I watched volleyball matches with our president of country Ilham Aliyev who is also the Minister of Olympic Sports Commitee. So,we have to find girls with perspective in their early age and to make high level players. Polina Rahimova-is a rising star of Azeri volleyball. most of the people call her the second Mammadova. Polina is an Uzbekistan born Ukrainian girl. She moved to Azerbaijan at 14,she was just tall girl and nothing more. Faig Garayev worked very hard and now in her 19 age she is in the National team of Azerbaijan and on the list of many high ambitious teams. The same with Kseniya Kovalenko which was the Best blocker of Champions league at her 19 age. Kseniya was 15 when she moved from Belarus to Azerbaijan,she was going in for basketball,and only six months before coming Baku she began to play volleyball. Faig Garayev took her because she was just tall. Now Kseniya Kovalenko one of the leaders of Azeri NT in her 23 years. Many clubs from Italy want her.
    We lost many of our players when we had crisis in our country in 1990`s. Victoria Ravva moved to France,some players went to trukey,Russia an d other countries.
    Sorry that I wrote you so much just for one question,but I wanted you to know as much as you want. Our teams aim to show their level in Europe and to improve the level of Azeri Superleagu which is improving day after day. Girls will improve watching them,our youth NT plays under the name Nagliyyatchi club in Azeri superleague and i think it is a big experience for them to playe agaist such strong team slike Rabita,Azerrail....
    So I think limit could stop the improvement for now. Three or two local players in level from any club to Nt is quite enough for NT than tens of weak players. In Nt plays max 20 players and for a long period we know who they are. And time by time we will find new players and they will INSHALLAH join to the NT.
    I hope that I could explain it to you! One more time,thanks for your interest.

  • Thank you very much for the information, Shabovta! I just hope Azeri volleyball grows day after day. We need to watch more Mammadovas and Parkhomenkos play. Volleyball would not be a so lovely sport without them. May others ones are born!!!!

    Thank you for such nice words!

    I don't think it is the main reason( traditionally Chinese are not tall, but girls are best in volleyball). Main reason is politics. During 1989-1994 Azerbaijan had very difficult time ( collapsing USSR, rebels, war etc..) nobody could think about volleyball or other sports. Also FIVB banned Azerbaijan VF in that time, so many playes went abroad.
    I watched our young players, I think and hope they will do better :)

  • I am so happy to this transfers!
    To my Croatian friends-look the first Croatian player in Azerbaijan. A few days ago we were talking about it as a wish,but now it is a reality!
    irina Zhukova is one of the best setters,I like her too much! Amazing and great setter. Diana Nenova is from Universitet Belgorod who is also very good setter. World Champion Natalya Kulikova-outside hitter with super reception and strong attacks!
    After winning of Championship title of Azerbaijan Rabita Baku decide to engage more members of SB Community. The new players of Rabita Baku are setters Irina Zhukova and Diana Nenova, middle blocker Mirela Delic and outside hitter Natalia Kulikova. Just few days ago the former members of Metal Galati, middle blocker Mira Golubovic and opposite Olga Tocko, signed new contracts with Rabita Baku for the season 2010/11



  • Good news for Azerbaijan volleyball! Hope we'll read achievments of NT and club teams from this site!


    I talked with one of the Azerrail player. She said that coach would be change :win:
    As I understood players had problems with the coach!
    I think Igtisadchi did wrong decision. If they play for championship Resat Yaziciogullari and Filiz Ozgur are not enough!
    Filis even is not middle level player :thumbdown:
