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.

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
