Construction of Ariake Arena in which the volleyball tournament will be held at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games is over.


Construction and inspection of a large complex with the sports hall, shopping center and a hotel in Ariake district near Tokyo, is over. Ariake Arena will be officially open in April next year, a few months prior to the beginning of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. The Japanese Volleyball Associations (JVA) will organize an international friendly tournament named “2020 Ariake Arena Volleyball Test Match”. Four national teams in men’s (Japan, Australia, China, and South Korea) and that much in women’s competition (Japan, China, Thailand, and Chinese Taipei) will participate in the event that will start on April 21 and end on April 26.

The complex in which both male and female volleyball tournaments will be played include a shopping center and over 200 restaurants, a music hall that can accommodate 8,000 people, and a theater. A hotel with approximately 750 rooms and a bus terminal connecting airports Haneda and Narita is also constructed. In addition, more than 1,500 condominiums have been built on the south side of the facility, and the nearby building in Olympic Village will be used as a condominium after the tournament.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
