The Management Board of the Polish Volleyball League has decided to end both men’s and women’s championship.


The Polska Liga Siatkówki has decided to end the 2019/20 Men’s Championship (PlusLiga) and 2019/20 Women’s Championship (Liga Siatkówki Kobiet). Both were suspended two weeks ago due to coronavirus pandemic and are definitely over for the same reason. But, the governing body of the club volleyball in Poland made different decisions regarding the champions in these two competitions.

Because the regular season in PlusLiga didn’t complete, men’s champions won’t be awarded. Three leading teams in the ranking will be entitled to compete in the 2021 CEV Champions League.

Since the Liga Siatkówki Kobiet regular season was completed, the Polish Volleyball League awarded the title to the winners of this stage, Grupa Azoty Chemik Police. Developres SkyRes Rzeszów will receive the silver medal and ŁKS Commercecon Łódź the bronze medal. In addition, Chemik and Developres earned the right to compete in the 2021 CEV Champions League.

At this very moment, the number of people infected by the new COVID-19 in Poland is 1,031. The death toll is 14.

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

'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
