The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) apologized for the ‘controversy over the use of practice balls’ during the Dodram 2022-23 season V-League game.
Controversy arose when it was confirmed belatedly that the practice ball was used in the match between IBK Industrial Bank and Pepper Savings Bank held at the Hwaseong Indoor Gymnasium on the 28th.
In the third set of the match, it was confirmed that the ball that IBK Choi Jeong-min was holding for the serve had the words ‘for practice’ written on it. 안전놀이터
Regarding this, KOVO issued an official apology on the 30th and said, “The game ball before the start of the game was confirmed without any problems, and even the first and second sets were operated without any problems.
” The official ball he had was mixed,” he explained, “I couldn’t filter it out before the start of the 3rd set.”
In addition, he said, “I feel sorry for the fans. To prevent a recurrence in the future, we will strengthen the management and training of game operators and make every effort to run the game smoothly.”
