After holding a meeting with the clubs, the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) decided to cancel the 2019/20 Women's Volleyball Championship.


In the meeting between the representatives of the Superliga Feminina clubs and CBV, it was decided that the 2019/20 edition won’t be finished due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As the health crisis is expected to last for at least another two months, clubs would need to wait to try to continue the championship in June. Although there’s no official announcement, the 2019/20 Men’s Superliga (Superliga Masculina) will experience the same fate. In the moment of cancellation of the Superliga Feminina, the clubs were preparing for the quarterfinal of the playoffs.

For the first time since the inaugural edition, which was in 1976, the Brazilian Women’s Championship will end without a champion. The continuation of the competition in June would be impossible for many reasons. The most important is that contracts of most athletes end in May and clubs wouldn’t have budgets to pay them after that. Furthermore, it’s difficult to know what the FIVB calendar will look like. If the Olympic Games are to be held as scheduled, it would be difficult to squeeze in Superliga Feminina matches in the timetable in between.

So, there will be no champions declared and the classification after the regular season will be respected as valid. This means that winners of the regular season, Dentil/Praia Clube, will have the direct qualification in the next season’s Super Cup and the 2021 South American Club Championship, while runners-up Itambé/Minas directly progressed to the next continental tournament, too.

Superliga Feminina joined an increasing group of national championships that are canceled.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
