A day after an exciting ending of the pool stage of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League, the governing body of European volleyball organized Drawing of Lots for the quarterfinals in its headquarters in Luxembourg.

 

Eight teams eagerly waited to see their rivals in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, which will be played without the most titled club in the competition Zenit Kazan who sensationally got stuck in the pool stage for the first time ever.

As it was known from earlier, Super Finals is scheduled for May 16, at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany. Unfortunately for the fans in the German capital, their team Berlin Recycling Volleys failed to advance to the Playoffs and thus, won’t be able to have a chance to play in front of their own fans in the eventual final match.

Interestingly, although three Italian teams (most from one country) have qualified for the quarterfinals, there will be no mutual encounters between them. The Playoffs are set to be played on March 3-5 (first leg) and one week later (second leg).

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.
