The Italian Women’s Volleyball League suspended five out of six matches scheduled for today, February 23, due to the danger of spreading of coronavirus.


All volleyball activities for today are suspended by the Italian Women’s League to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country. The coronavirus outbreak in Italy is the biggest outside of Asia, causing the death of three people, while more than 150 are infected.

This decision was recommended by the Minister for Youth and Sport. The Italian League imposed its suspension to the matches of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season in the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Piedmont in which five matches of Round 20 were to be held today.

The only encounter that took place was between Il Bisonte Firenze and Savino Del Bene Scandicci, in the region of Tuscany. The latter prevailed by a 3-1 and took over third place in the charts from Igor Gorgonzola Novara.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
