Hanno Pevkur, vice-president of the CEV, European Volleyball Confederation, Estonian candidate for CEV presidential election, posted some thoughts on the COVID-19 outbreak on his website.

 

“While we all feel very passionate about Volleyball in Europe, in recent weeks we have been reminded about life’s priorities, especially with the outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) moving across Europe. 

For me personally, I found myself in the middle of this health crisis last week when a close friend of mine contracted the virus. In fact, it was the manager of Saaremma VC, the leading Volleyball club in Estonia, who tested positive following a CEV Cup match where I was present. In order to not take any risks, I self-quarantined and myself got tested.

Luckily it was negative, however it got me thinking. I believe that nobody across European Volleyball should be taking even the smallest of risk. This is why I would strongly recommend that we immediately:

1) Accept the need to terminate the season 2019/20 for both national and international leagues;

2) Accept the need to terminate the European Golden and Silver League 2020;

3) Create clear guidelines for all clubs regarding contracts of players;

4) Prepare clear instructions for all National Federations regarding next season’s European Cup.

Sometimes we face unforeseeable situations, however when we do find ourselves in such a crisis we can and we must show the necessary leadership,” said Hanno Pevkur.

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.

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
