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.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
