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.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
