The continuous spread of the coronavirus across the globe forced Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) to cancel all competitions this year.


Given that the COVID-19 is still spreading at alarming speed across the world, including Asia, the AVC canceled all indoor and beach volleyball competitions at the continent in 2020. It will keep to closely follow the pandemic of the novel coronavirus on a daily basis and stay in active communication with the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) in an effort to resume its activities and competitions as soon as possible.

The only tournaments that might have a chance to be played in Asia this year are underage tournaments. In case the situation with the coronavirus returns to normal in the next few months, underage tournaments are to be held either November or December.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
