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.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
