The ongoing season of the Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship has been suspended for the second time in the last two weeks.


The President of the Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile, Mauro Fabris, announced the suspension of the regular season starting from today, March 8, until further notice. The reason is, of course, the coronavirus outbreak that severely struck Italy, more specifically the north if the country.

Recall that the Italian Women’s Championship has already been suspended once, a two weeks ago, and resumed yesterday when the leaders Imoco Volley Conegliano swept Banca Valsabbina Millenium Brescia (3-0) behind the closed doors and recorded the 18th win in a row overall, 10th in a row in Serie A. This means that neither of the encounters scheduled for today (Round 23) won’t take place.

Interestingly, the men's championship wasn’t suspended again.

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.
