The Greek volleyball federation decided to decrease the number of the foreign athletes from four to three in the male and female volleyball teams of A1. The decision was taken on 05.02.2010 and affects the period for the next three years.

The change introduced by the federation is in a complete unison with the desire of the Association of the Greek professional volleyball players, which show its satisfaction of the introduced restrictions. The association of the Greek professional volleyball players expresses their confidence that the change in A1 will defiantly have a positive influence on the Greek volleyball.

The Union of the volleyball players however is very disappointed and surprised by the decision of the federation. The negative reactions and protests caused by this decision among the members of the Union became the reason for even suggesting the teams to refrain from participating in the championship for the cup of Greece. After the discussions however it was decided that in the beginning of next week a special meeting of the board of directors will be held where will be discussed the ways in which the union will react to the decision of the federation. Members of the union announced that they are disappointed from the neglectful attitude shown towards them and the professional volleyball by the federation. Despite of the promises of the federation that the taking of decisions which affect the male and female volleyball teams of A1 will be taken in the presence of a member of the Union (as it is stipulated in the very statute of the federation) this did not happen at all. The Union insists that the decisions related to the number of foreign players in A1 could not be taken unilateral.
