Hosting the champs

At the end of a summer full of titles for the senior and junior Azzurri selections, including the historic gold medal of men’s Italvolley in Poland after 24 years of waiting, the new season of the most beautiful championship in the world will open over the weekend. RAI Sport and Volleyball World will follow the matches of the SuperLega Credem Banca.

Prohibitory stumbling block for Gioiella Prisma Taranto, which wants to demonstrate the good things done as a freshman and on Saturday 1 October at 19.00 the season starts at PalaMazzola with live broadcast RAI Sport, but immediately challenges the Italian champions of Cucine Lube Civitanova.

On Saturday at 20.30 the Padova Volleyball welcomes the Valsa Group Modena. These are two teams that made their debut last season. Mindful of the false start against Lube in 2021/22, the players from Padova dream of a very different approach to the Regular Season, just like the Modena, who want to quickly erase the slip in Brianza at the first take of the last year.

To open the dances on Sunday is the challenge of 15.30 at PalaBarton, headquarters of Sir Safety Susa Perugia, a team that has further strengthened and arrives at the starting line with a sextet of champions, followed by a high profile bench.

With live broadcast of RAI Sport at 6.00 pm, the vice-champions of Europe of Itas Trentino, on the day of race no. 200 by Daniele Lavia, do the honors of the SuperLega Credem Banca to the freshman Emma Villas Aubay Siena, back in the top flight thanks to the purchase of the sports title of Reggio Emilia. The Tuscans have been in A2 for three years with a troubled last season, which ended in 9th place. What is about to start the season could be Angelo Lorenzetti’s usual Itas, aggressive on the block, capable of defending every ball and with a bomb-proof feeling thanks to an unchanged structure.

Also at 18.00 the match between Allianz Milano and Top Volley Cisterna. The Milanese aim for a further step forward after the progress shown in recent years and compete for elbowing with the most accredited teams in the SuperLeague. The best way to start the march is to take advantage of the home factor, but an opponent arrives in Lombardy that should not be underestimated.

The first postponement of the season takes place at 8.30 pm on Sunday on the PalaBanca field. The closure between the friendly walls is up to Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza, which after the arrival at the Final Four of the Del Monte® Coppa Italia 2022 has highlighted itself as the queen of the summer market with illustrious arrivals, above all the return of Robertlandy Simon, and a presentation capable of inflaming the fans.
