For the first time ever, China will host the FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship.


In recent days, the news of the assignment of the Men’s Club World Championship to China for the next three seasons has appeared in the media. Albino Massaccesi, the Vice President of the reigning champions of the competition, Cucine Lube Civitanova, confirmed the speculations and revealed it will be played in a different format:

“We’ll return to the format with 8 teams that gives more charm, prestige, and credibility to the event. In China costs will be lower than in Brazil and premiums should be higher,” the official of the Italian club said.

The event, therefore, arrives for the first time in China, where the women’s tournament was held in the last two years. It’s yet unknown in what city and when the 2020 edition of the Men’s Club World Championship will be held, but Massaccesi guessed it will be in December.

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.
