The board of directors of the French Volleyball Federation (FFVolley) validated the extension of the contract with the men’s national team head coach Laurent Tillie until the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.


Following the contract which Tillie reached with the Japanese men’s club Panasonic Panthers, the FFVolley decided to extend its contract with the expert, who will lead the “Les Bleus” at the postponed Tokyo Olympics (July 23 - August 8, 2021).

Actually, the FFVolley and the Panthers have agreed on this matter, meaning that Tillie will be at the helm of the France Men for the ninth straight year. The unofficial news on this appeared a month ago. During that time, he commanded the team to win the gold medal at the 2015 CEV EuroVolley and at the two FIVB Volleyball Nations Leagues. Tillie’s record on the bench of the France Men is 170 victories and 62 defeats (73% success).

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.
