An important transfer move for the next season was made by the defending Greek volleyball club champions Panathinaikos A.O.
They agreed to terms with the former Italy National Team member Jiří Kovář and, by completing the transfer of the 33-year-old outside hitter, they added the last player to their starting line-up engine for 2022/23. Kovář came to Greece bringing an enviable trophy record achieved mostly with Cucine Lube Civitanova for whom he has been competing for as many as 11 years. With the SuperLega side, he has conquered practically everything, including CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship (both in 2019), 6 Italian Championships, 3 Italian Cups, and 2 Super Cups. Prior to that, with Sisley Treviso, the Czech-born player who has been competing for Italy National Team between 2011 and 2021, took the CEV Cup in 2011.
About Panathinaikos, earlier, the Athens side hired outside hitter Andreas Fragkos (from Foinikas Syros ONEX), middle blocker Giorgios Petreas (from P.A.O.K), libero Dimitris Zisis (from Olympiacos S.F.P.), Vasilis Kostopoulos (from A.O.P. Kifissias), and Cuban opposite hitter Fernando Hernández (from Turkish powerhouse Halkbank Ankara), and they extended with Brazilian middle blocker Lucas Victor Rangel and Danish setter Axel Jacobsen.
