The President of Jastrzębski Węgiel admitted that it’s not possible that the Polish club will play the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League even in case it resumes.

 

Jastrzębski President Adam Gorol said for Polsat Sport that there’s no chance that the club will rejoin the Champions League even if it would be resumed at a later date. According to the decision of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV), all competitions under its jurisdiction are postponed until further notice due to coronavirus pandemic.

“The prevailing epidemic of coronavirus meant that we had to contact CEV at the beginning of March. At the time, I was fighting for our team not to go to Italy for the quarterfinal match (against Itas Trentino). I must admit that it was a great battle. As we know, ultimately we didn’t go to this match. We’re still in touch with the European federation. There’s no final decision, it’s to appear at the beginning of April. However, I know that it will be impossible for us to play this edition of the Champions League. The players are already leaving, there’s no training,“ the head of the club said.

Gorol added that the only solution would be to extend the next edition of the Champions League with Jastrzębski because this edition of the competition likely won’t be completed and he will suggest this to the CEV.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
