"A lot of people wanted this"
Miguel Maia issues rallying call for newly formed volleyball team
22 yeas on, on of Alvalade's most missed sports makes its return. Sporting CP's volleyball department closed back in 1995, but is now back in full force and will take part in National Division I next season.
Miguel Maia is the first name announced for the new team. The handball skipper proved more than aware of the responsibilities awaiting: "A lot of people wanted this to happen. We have to keep our heads, but we will have a team capable of fighting for titles. I can already imagine playing in a packed João Rocha Arena."
