The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) made the anticipation for the return of its annual competition, the Volleyball Nations League (VNL), more intense by announcing the schedule for the 2021 edition.


The continuity of the VNL, formerly known as the FIVB World Grand Prix, has been interrupted this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The FIVB has heated up the anticipation for the next edition of the tournament by announcing the schedule for both men’s and women’s competitions in 2021.


Women will break the ice on May 11, while men will start on May 14. The FIVB retained the format of previous seasons, meaning that 16 teams per gender will face each other in pools of four teams each during a five-week period after which the six teams taking part in the final tournaments (Final Sixes) will be determined.

All venues for the Intercontinental Round are yet to be confirmed but what’s known is that China will host the women’s Final Six, while Italy will organize the men’s Finals. Both are scheduled at the same time, on June 23-27.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
