The Italian Volleyball League decided to organize the final of the next men’s Super Cup outdoors.


The final of the 2020/21 Italian men’s Super Cup (Del Monte® Supercoppa) will be played outdoors, at the Arena di Verona, on September 25. The Italian Volleyball League (Lega Pallavolo Serie A) thus has chosen a sensational setting for the first official volleyball competition in the country of the next season, which brings the sport back to this Roman amphitheater after 32 years.

The Arena di Verona mostly held award-winning ceremonies and fashion shows in recent years. As for volleyball, no match has been played within its walls since the encounter between the United States and the Soviet Union in 1988. The number of available places at the stands of the Arena di Verona is 15,000, which was the maximum of people attending concerts and operas.

Prior to the final, the best four ranked teams during the 2019/20 SuperLega regular season will play the round-robin semifinals (September 13 and September 20): Cucine Lube Civitanova vs. Itas Trentino and Leo Shoes Modena vs. Sir Safety Conad Perugia.

Recall that there was an idea to play the women’s Super Cup final outdoors as well but it has been discarded for now.

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.
