Valinhos refused the invitation to play the Brazilian women’s volleyball Championship next season.


Valinhos finished the last season in Superliga second-to-last at the moment of the cancelation of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic which is the position that would have relegated them to the lower rank. But the Brazilian League, like most leagues in the world, let all the clubs from the last season to remain in the top division.

However, because of being unable to find sponsors to maintain the base of the last season's roster, Valinhos decided to refuse the invitation to play the 2020/21 Superliga and will participate in Superliga B (second division) next season.

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.
