The defending champions Bolívar Voley remained unbeatable in the 2019/20 Argentine Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season even after eight matches and even after playing fierce rivals UPCN San Juan Voley Club in the “clásico”.


At the closing of Weekend 5 of the 2019/20 Liga Argentina de Voleibol regular season, Bolívar beat UPCN in the biggest derby of an Argentine male volleyball by a 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-20). Although an intense match is expected when the two most-titled sides in the country meet, the current form favored Bolívar and they justified this role to remain at the top of the charts without suffering a single defeat (8-0).

By collecting 23 points, the team coached by Javier Weber has as many as five points more than the closest followers in the standings, Gigantes del Sur. UPCN came fifth with 3-5 and 11 points. Cuban opposite Jesús Herrera top-scored for Bolívar with 21 points. His compatriot Miguel Ángel López made 11 points for the losing side.

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.
