While volleyball clubs in France are finalizing their transfer window activities and started preparing for the coming season, the league organization has composed the calendar for 2020/21.


The Ligue Nationale Volley (LNV) set the calendar of the men’s and women’s 2020/21 championship (Ligue A Féminine and Ligue A Masculine, respectively) and made the official list of clubs competing in them. The women’s league will consist of 15 teams, while men’s league will have 14 teams.

First the calendar: the women’s regular season is to be played from September 26 to April 25 and there will be no playoffs, meaning that the club finishing first in the charts after the last round will be awarded the title. The men’s regular season will start later but end earlier than women’s, from October 3 to March 27, and clubs will compete in the playoffs after that (April 3 to 25).

Final Four of the women’s Cup is on September 19 and 20 in Cannes, while the men’s Final Four will be held on September 26 and 27 in Toulouse.

CLUBS (alphabetical order)

Ligue A Féminine: Béziers, Cannes, Chamalières, France Avenir 2024, Istres, Le Cannet, Marcq-en-Barœul, Mougins, Mulhouse, Nantes, Paris St-Cloud, Pays d'Aix Venelles, Saint-Raphaël, Terville Florange, and Vandoeuvre Nancy.

Ligue A Masculine: Ajaccio, Cambrai, Cannes, Chaumont, Montpellier, Nantes Rezé, Narbonne, Nice, Paris, Poitiers, Sète, Toulouse, Tourcoing, and Tours.

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.
