The Polish Volleyball Federation (PZPS) reported on its website that the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) has modified the rules relating to the roster of national teams that will participate in the Volleyball Nations League this year.


The FIVB has established new rules relating to the number of players that can be registered in the roster of each national team for the competition, which will decline progressively as VNL gets nearer to its end: 30 players in the O-2A form, 25 players in the O-2 form and, finally, 12-14 players in the O-2bis form. Last year’s rules relating to the minimum number of 16 players that played in the 2018 World Championship and had to be compulsorily included in the O-2 form, and the minimum number of 18 players in the same form that competed in the 2018 VNL or the 2018 Challenger Cup, have been abolished in case the specific team didn’t participate in the 2018 World Championship. 

Also, a new rule has been introduced regarding the roster of the teams qualified for the final tournament of the 2020 VNL. Each participating team must have a minimum of 10 players in the final composition (O-2bis form) who have been present in the composition (O-2bis form) for at least 9 games of the VNL this year during one of the 5 tournaments of the intercontinental stage. Each of the 10 players must have been on the court in these games during a minimum of 30% of the rallies concluded with one point for one team or another. After the end of the pool stage of the 2020 VNL, the FIVB will confirm to the teams that have qualified for the Finals the list of players who meet the above criteria.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
