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.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
