The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) has released a competition calendar for 2020.


Based on the decisions of the most recent FIVB Board of Administration, the FIVB released a competition calendar for 2020 in which they will implement the following:

• A regulated break for the athletes competing in the club season, Nations League and 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games;

• The club season will start as of September 15, 2020.

• FIVB has created a working group to define the FIVB calendar for the period between 2021 and 2024, which is the next Olympic cycle.

As it is visible, the FIVB reacted to the complaints that players made in regard to busy calendar, three months ago, and regulated a period during which they will be able to take a break. That period will be between August 10 and 23.

Here are the dates for volleyball tournaments in the FIVB calendar for 2020:

  • January 6-12: Continental Olympic Qualification Tournaments
  • May 19-June 21: Women’s and Men’s FIVB Nations League Preliminary Round
  • June 24-28: Women’s and Men’s FIVB Challenger Cup
  • July 1-5: Women’s and Men’s FIVB Nations League Final Six
  • July 24-August 9: Women’s and Men’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics tournaments
  • August 10-23: Regulated athletes break
  • August 17-30: Women’s and Men’s Continental Championship Qualifications

She wont miss the Olympics. She is already 4 months pregnant and will give birth early February. Enough time to recovery. Reply

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
