Belarus joined a small group of countries whose national volleyball federation decided to resume the 2019/20 season that was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.


After a six-month break in women’s competition and a seven-month break in men’s competition, the 2019/20 Belarusian Championship has resumed.

Six days ago, the country’s federation (BVF) made a decision to resume both leagues, starting from the playoff semifinals, which caught the main women’s title contenders Minchanka competing in the Russian Cup. Having only one day to recuperate after the match that concluded the first stage of the Russian Cup (3-2 vs YUZGU-Atom) and a trip from Lipets to Minsk where all men’s and women’s matches of the reopened 2019/20 Division A are to be held, Minchanka beat vice-champions Pribuzhe (3-0: 25-17, 25-14, 25-18) and advanced to the final. There, they will play the reigning champions Zhemchuzhina Polesya, who swept Kommunalnik-MGU.

In men’s competition, there will be the rerun of the last season’s final: Stroitel vs. Shakhter. Both prevailed over their respective rivals Legion and Energiya in straight sets in the semifinals.

2019/20 Division A, semifinals:


Women's final (September 16):

12:00 CET, Minchanka vs Zhemchuzhina Polesya

Men's final (September 16):

17:00 CET, Stroitel vs Shakhter

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
