The Estonia men’s volleyball National Team canceled friendly matches against Poland.


The Estonia National Team was to play two away friendly matches against the world champions Poland on July 26 and 27, but decided not to go there due to the threat of the coronavirus. So, instead of traveling to Łódź (there was even the possibility that the audience will be present on the stands), the Estonia National Team will return to the country from Finland where it played a friendly match in Salo and won by a 3-0 (25-20, 25-15, 25-19).

The Estonia Men head coach Cédric Énard said that there has been a lot of news from Poland in recent days about the increase in the number of people infected with the coronavirus, and that was the reason to cancel the arranged encounters. Estonia will continue preparations for the friendly matches against Latvia, which will take place in early August in Võru and Tartu.

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.
