The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) made more changes to the 2020 calendar because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


After already postponing the 2020 Volleyball Nations League, the FIVB announced further changes to its events calendar for indoor volleyball.

“The men’s and women’s Volleyball Challenger Cup 2020 events due to be hosted in Gondomar, Portugal and Zadar, Croatia respectively on 24-28 June, have been postponed until further notice. This is due to these events serving as opportunities for emerging volleyball nations to potentially qualify for, and compete in, next year’s edition of the prestigious Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2021. This year’s edition of the event, the VNL 2020, has already been postponed,“ the FIVB published.

Obviously, the FIVB will have to make a new decision regarding the 2020 VNL. Initially, it was postponed until after the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games but the Olympics have been recently rescheduled for 2021.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
