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

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.

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply
