The South Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) decided to put an end to the ongoing club season.

 

The KOVO was amongst first volleyball federations in the world to suspend competitions in view of the COVID-19 outbreak. Given that a large part of the world, including Korea, is still in the midst of the fight against coronavirus (nearly 9,000 infected and 111 death cases in the country), KOVO assessed there are no conditions to resume men’s and women’s championship (2019/20 Dodram V-League).

The KOVO added that given the season ended prematurely, there will be no champions, while the current, regular-season ranking will be respected. The KOVO also plans to award prize money for the first three teams in the ranking in both championships to support their budget and also to donate money to support league’s officials and referees.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
