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 COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
