The European Volleyball Confederation decided it was time to cut the things.

 

The CEV annulled all of its previous decisions to postpone and reschedule matches due to coronavirus outbreak with the newest decision, which is radical. But it was an expected move of the governing body of volleyball in Europe.

“Further to the escalation of the coronavirus outbreak across Europe and the latest measures adopted by national and European authorities to fight against the pandemic, the CEV Board of Administration has decided to postpone all CEV events until April 3, 2020,” CEV published on its website.

The only exception to this decision is the face-off between Russian rivals Lokomotiv Novosibirsk and Zenit Saint Petersburg in the semifinals of the 2020 Men’s CEV Cup (March 19 and March 26). That’s because these matches involve two clubs from the same country.

The CEV stressed that it has been “monitoring the development of the COVID-19 epidemic since the very beginning of the outbreak and stresses once more its full commitment to protecting the health and safety of all athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and spectators.”

Recall that the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) postponed the 2020 Volleyball Nations League for after the Tokyo Olympics.

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

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

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.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

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
