Following the decision to postpone all competitions until April 3, CEV today made a new decision after reviewing the current situation and FIVB decision to change the competition calendar. We announce the CEV decision below…


 

-- Following the latest developments, the members of the CEV Board of Administration have agreed to postpone all CEV events until further notice. This decision applies to the following competitions:

•    European Cups (i.e. Champions League, CEV Cup and Challenge Cup) scheduled to take place until mid-May 2020*

•    Under-age Volleyball qualifiers scheduled for late April and early May 2020 across four age groups (U17 Women, U18 Men, U19 Women, U20 Men)

•    CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup Phase 2 scheduled for the week 12 to 17 May 2020

•    CEV Volleyball European Golden and Silver League 2020. 

*As previously announced, the only exception to this policy remain the CEV Cup – Men semi-final matches between the Russian teams of Zenit SAINT PETERSBURG and Lokomotiv NOVOSIBIRSK.

“This has been a hard and painful decision, which we have taken it with the health and safety of our players, officials and fans in mind. However, considering the overall situation across Europe and aiming to provide clear guidance and to allow reasonable planning for all stakeholders, we had to make this decision now. We will further monitor the situation and work together with all of our stakeholders in order to find mutual solutions depending on the further development of the crisis,” says CEV President Aleksandar Boričić.

 “Staying united, keeping an open communication and continuously working with positive energy for the good of our beloved sport, I am confident that we will manage all together to overcome this crisis. We thank you for your understanding and we sincerely wish you and your families to stay healthy and safe,” the CEV President concluded in his address to all members of the European Volleyball family and all Volleyball lovers. --

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
