But that is the finish of the “unlucky enterprise”, the Bundesliga gamers from Navarro Straubing now not have to heat up – the workforce was instantly faraway from the sport.
For the Volleyball Bundesliga (VBL), which organizes the males’s and ladies’s video games, the cancellation is a extreme loss.

However, VBL managing director Daniel Sattler, who speaks of a “troublesome product” when speaking about skilled volleyball, explains that there is no such thing as a clear sample and the causes may be defined on a case-by-case foundation.
Straubing, which was relegated from the Bundesliga in 2016 as a result of the insolvency of the then working firm, proved too weak to make financial sense. There was additionally a scarcity of correct construction in the organizational space concerning industrial and administrative obligations.
