The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) announced changing the mode for the 2020/21 Champions League, which will be adjusted and quite different compared to what was initially planned, and what was also the practice for many years.

What was only an idea will be fulfilled in reality: The CEV reacted to the Europe-wide pandemic situation with a new concept for the Men’s and Women’s Champions League for the ongoing season. The change is intended to increase the chances of the competition being carried out in full and to minimize the risk of infection for the players.

The pool stage (4th Round) remains unchanged in terms of composition. However, there will be no home and return games. Instead, there will be two single round-robin tournaments held in ‘bio-secure bubbles’ at two different venues in each pool, with two matches held on three days (Tuesday to Thursday).

The total number of games remains the same and the five group winners and the three best runners-up will qualify for the quarterfinals. Check out the schedule and tournament hosts.

Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
