Franchise Notes: Spanish Men's Volleyball Club Zaragoza Pulls Out Of '13-14 Season
Spanish men's volleyball club Zaragoza on Wednesday announced that the team will not participate in the '13-14 Superliga season because it was "unable to find the necessary sponsorship to guarantee the minimum budget to compete." Zaragoza's statement emphasized that the team "will not disappear and it will keep working" (EFE, 9/25). ... The "next three months will be key" for the future of Spanish second division side Deportivo La Coruña. The weeks to come "will produce three very important events in the transformation of the club: a presidential election, a creditors' agreement and a financial audit." A "good agreement with creditors is what will determine if Deportivo is able to continue its athletic activity" (MARCA, 9/25).
