Since foreigner quotas vary drastically from league to league, this list may help to get a quick overview:

  • Italy - 4 on the court
  • Poland - 3 on the court (not counting Ukrainian players)
  • Russia - 2
  • Germany - no quota
  • France - 6
  • China - no quota (since season 22/23 - before that: 2)
  • Japan - 1 (+1 Asian Player)
  • Korea - 1 (+1 Asian Player)
  • Turkey - 3 on the court
  • Finland - 4
  • Brazil - 3 (but not from the same nationality)
  • Spain - 4 on the court
  • Sweden - 3 on the court
  • Switzerland - 4
  • Indonesia - 2
  • Romania - 5 on the court
  • Greece - 3
  • Portugal - no quota
  • Qatar - 3
  • Saudi Arabia - 3
  • Oman - 1
  • Kuwait - 1
  • Bahrain - 1
  • Azerbaijan - 5
  • Denmark - no quota
  • Austria - 5

Wrong about Japan
Japan : 1 foreigner player + 1 Asian player
men's side: Asian player = Asean coutries + China + Korea
women's side: Asian player = Asean coutries only

@Hidesada In the 2022/23 season, players from Ukraine will be included in the team as Poles.  They will not be counted towards the foreigners limit. TAURONLiga

@RadosławDubik The fact that you said TAURONLiga means that it will be only in womens league or also in mens? Do you have a source or is it not published yet? :)

@SeanMcKay France requires actually only one French player on the court. But this year Le Cannet choose to play with 7 foreigners and to pay a fine for every match. That raises ethical questions in France.

Italy - 4 on the court
Poland - 3 on the court
Turkey - 3 on the court
The foreign quota works best in these three countries. @WoohyongChoi  @Hidesada

In Portugal there's no quota, which I think undermines Portuguese young players' development

@doongie1015 yeah i always wondered why there is no such a thing already published. I guess the list will be up to date as long as I or other users provide information about changes or new leagues ?

@Hidesada hi sorry, one update for the Romanian league!
Rather than having a limit on foreign players, there is a limit of having minimum 2 Romanian players.
Previously I was under the impression that it was 2/6 players on court, but it is actually 2/7 players (incl benched Li/MB), so 5 foreign players are allowed (given that the benched player is Romanian)

This is my source :)

@Hidesada re: your list up top … Japan might more accurately be “1 (+1 ASEAN player)” because the +1 can't be from China or Korea …
[edit] oops, I guess the men's is different, as explained by @Happy

@AlpÇifci @VolleyTurco so 3 on the court and 2 on the bench?

@Hidesada Correct. Teams can have a maximum of 5 foreigners in their 14-man match squad(roster). 3 on the court and 2 on the bench. There may be unlimited number of foreigners outside the match squad. For example, Vakıfbank currently has 6 foreigners. Every week, one of these 6 foreigners cannot make the match squad.
