A team with the worst score in the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season Bartoccini Fortinfissi Perugia defeated leaders Imoco Volley Conegliano!


Today, Perugia wrote down only their second victory of the season in the Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile and still occupy the last place in the charts. But they beat club world champions Imoco by a 3-2 (25-15, 23-25, 25-18, 17-25, 15-10) in a postponed match of Round 9! Only four days after becoming planetary champions, Imoco head coach Santarelli decided not to put in protocol neither of the players from the lineup that lifted the trophy in China, giving space to the backups and youth team members. So, the victory of Perugia that ended Imoco’s unbeaten run of nine games isn’t really a sensation. Brazilian duo Regiane Bidias “Régis” and Rosamaria Montibeller scored 24 points apiece for the winning side. American Chiaka Ogbogu tallied 21 points, including 8 kill blocks! The 19-year-old libero Eleonora Fersino made 83% reception (35 digs, 74% perfect).

Another team that just came back from the Club World Championship suffered the same fate today. Igor Gorgonzola Novara, whose head coach Barbolini unlike Imoco’s didn’t give a day off to main players lost at home to Reale Mutua Fenera Chieri.

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.
