  • The above entries of team rosters are merely a hook - poor informations available so far, the official change sites on volleyball.de and volleyball-bundesliga.de are also not yet activated for the season coming. Anyway, feel free to provide informations, I have for sure missed some alreaday in this early phase.

  • I have updated the roster of Münster. A while ago some press releases said that they already have 9 players under contract and are negotiating with Ines Bathen (who might retire because she has finished her studies to work as teacher), Juliane Langgemach and Roosa Laakkonen. Ivana Bulajic and Nadja Schaus are leaving.

    Thanks, that is what I mentioned - I have missed for sure some press releases like this.

  • Katarina Osadchuk will leave Suhl. She has already signed with AZS Gliwice (polish 2nd division).
    Setter Anastasia Shash signed with Suhl.


    Can you give me any further information about Anastasia Shash? I couldn't find anything about her, assuming she has Polish citizenship only, no idea of birthyear...
