De coach

Ferhat Akbas

The only 29-year old Akbas is one of the youngest elite coaches around but still can boast an impressive resume since he was at the helm of Turkey’s national team that claimed top honours in the 2014 edition of the CEV Volleyball European League as well as at the Baku 2015 European Games. Akbas has been working for a long time alongside the coach of the Dutch national team, Giovanni Guidetti, contributing to the success story of one of the world’s most decorated Volleyball teams lately, VakifBank Istanbul. VakifBank set an all-time record – officially acknowledged as such also by the Guinness World Records – of 73 consecutive wins by combining domestic and international competitions. In the last edition of the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League, Akbas – and Guidetti – had to be content with third place after losing the Turkish derby in the semis with eventual winners Eczacibasi VitrA.
