WP SportoweFakty revealed the names of participants and rules of the competition at the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship.

 

According to the Polish website WP SportoweFakty, the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship will have only four teams, none of them will come from their country!

Over the past few years, the number of teams that participated in the tournament stabilized at eight. But, this number will be cut to half for the next event. So, only four teams will play for the prestigious trophy this time: the South American champions Sada Cruzeiro (Brazil), the best team in Asia Shahrdari Varamin VC (Iran) and the 2019 CEV Champions League finalists Cucine Lube Civitanova (Italy) and Zenit Kazan (Russia). This means that even the last Club World Championship titleholders Itas Trentino will not take part, too!

The new rules will be different compared to previous editions. The first stage will be played in the round-robin format. Then, No.1 vs. No.4 and No.2 vs. No.3 will play the semi-finals. The tournament is scheduled at the same time as the Women’s (another novelty), on December 3-8.

The name of the country that will host the Club World Championship for Men is still unknown. Some sources say it will be Brazil, while WP SportoweFakty pointed out Ningbo, China, as the main candidate.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
