After a breathtaking finale against Sir Safety Conad Perugia, Cucine Lube Civitanova won the Italian Men’s Volleyball Cup for the sixth time in the history of the club.


Lube Civitanova are the national cup winners for the sixth time in the history of the club (2001, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2017, 2020).

Perugia missed a historic record: winning the 2019/20 Del Monte Coppa Italia SuperLega in Bologna would have made them the first team to take home three consecutive trophies in the competition. As for Lube, they broke the curse: after two consecutive defeats in the final, both to Perugia, the Italian, European and world champions added this year’s trophy to their showcase.

The match itself lasted for nearly three hours (two hours and 54 minutes). Lube played marathon match in the semis as well.

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.
