The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) introduced the official, updated calendar for the next season.


The FIVB’s Board of Administration approved official dates for the 2020/21 season that follows the postponement of the Olympic Games from 2020 to 2021, as well as the cancellation of the 2020 Volleyball League of Nations. Apart from including these two events in 2021, the new, updated volleyball calendar (whose parts leaked to the media yesterday) has left the possibility of restarting the 2019/20 national club season as well.

These are updates to the 2020/21 calendar (initial calendar looked like this):

  • 2019/20 and 2020/21 national club season

National club season is allowed to start from June 1, 2020, either to complete the 2019/20 season or start the 2020/21 season, which should end no later than April 18, 2021.

  • 2021 continental club championship finals

Continental club championship finals are to take place by no later than May 2, 2021.

  • 2021 Volleyball Nations League

VNL will be held starting from the second week of May 2021 (either May 7 or May 11, 2021) and ending on June 27, 2021. Italy and China will remain host nations for the finals.

  • 2021 continental championships

Continental championships will take place on August 19 - September 19, 2021. Continental confederations are to be responsible for adapting the qualification processes.

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.
