This was quite a strange night in the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season...


Round 23 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season was marked by a lot of chaotic moments. A derby between fierce rivals Cucine Lube Civitanova and Itas Trentino should have been in the spotlight but it wasn’t.

Just when the curtain was raised in the competition after it was temporarily suspended due to coronavirus outbreak in the country, it was put down again on some of the courts. The match between the home side of Allianz Milano and Kioene Padova was canceled although the players of both teams were in the locker room preparing to enter the court. The reason was that symptoms of fever were determined in some of the players of Milano (it wasn’t specified in which ones) on the mandatory screening. Globo Banca Popolare del Frusinate Sora didn’t come to the match against Gas Sales Piacenza and the latter will win by a forfeit.

Now, let’s get back to a derby. Just like in the semifinals of the national Cup, Lube came back from 0-2 to 3-2 against Trentino! With a win, the titleholders remained at the top of the charts. The match was held without spectators. Cuban-Brazilian Yoandy Leal tallied 25 points for Lube, while Serbian Uroš Kovačević scored 24 points for the losing side.

Leo Shoes Modena kept breathing down the neck of Lube in the standings after recording a 3-1 win over Vero Volley Monza.

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.
