One of the matches of European volleyball cups that haven’t been postponed initially due to coronavirus outbreak won’t take place after all.


The rematch of the 2020 CEV Men’s Champions  League quarterfinals between Italy’s Sir Sicoma Monini Perugia and Russia’s Fakel Novy Urengoy found its place in the list of postponed matches of European cups due to spread of coronavirus that severely struck Italy. Although initially, the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) said the encounter in Italy will take place as scheduled, Perugia informed of a different decision of the governing volleyball body in the Old Continent.

“Sir Sicoma Monini Perugia informs that it has received official communication from the CEV in regard to the Perugia - Novy Urengoy match which was scheduled for tomorrow March 10 at 20:30 at PalaBarton. The CEV announces that this match won’t take place and that it will inform for further decisions on the matter,“ the „Block Devils“ posted on their website.

Recall that Fakel asked CEV to relocate or postpone the match in question.

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

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
