Media in Italy speculate that this country might organize the next edition of the FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship.


Will Italy be the new home of the Men’s Club World Championship? For now, there’s no confirmation of this rumor that appeared in the media in this country. The news is based on the fact that China’s authorities recently declared this Asian nation won’t be hosting international sporting events throughout 2020, which includes the Men’s Club World Championship.

Italian media reported that the candidate cities to host the new edition of the event organized by the FIVB are Civitanova and Pesaro. They say that Italy has the most chances to replace China due to the fact that the two reigning champions of the tournament are from this country: Cucine Lube Civitanova for men and Imoco Volley Conegliano for women.

Additional information said that Itas Trentino will likely receive a wild card.

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.
