It doesn’t happen quite often but the exact same eight teams that managed to go through to the quarterfinals of the CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League last year pulled it off this year, too.


There were no sensational outcomes in terms of big names staying out of the Playoffs like in men’s competition. Looking at the names of the clubs, this year’s quarterfinals will be a repeat of the last year’s. Italy and Turkey have three representatives each, while Russia and Germany have one each.

There will be no mutual encounters of teams from the same country although the odds for that were high prior to the Drawing of Lots. However, two rivals will face in a repeat of the last year's quarterfinals: Russia's Dinamo Moscow and Turkey's VakıfBank İstanbul.

The next stage of the event will be played on March 3-5, with the rematches set for one week later. The Super Final, at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany, is scheduled for May 16. This is the outcome of the draw for the quarterfinals organized in the CEV headquarters in Luxembourg.

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.
