The titleholders Kuzbass narrowly avoided a huge upset in Round 10 of the 2019/20 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season and extended the winning streak to six games.


The underdogs Enisey provided a surprisingly tough resistance to the champions Kuzbass in the 10th round of the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch regular season, extending the match to the tie-break but failed to make an upset. It is unknown why the top scorer of the team from Kemerovo, Viktor Poletaev, hasn’t been playing much lately (probably due to injury) but today he wasn’t even in the protocol. Anton Karpukhov tallied 17 points for Kuzbass. Bulgarian Todor Skrimov and Ukrainian Yan Ereshchenko scored 19 points apiece for Enisey. Due to the fact that Lokomotiv also recorded a victory, Kuzbass remained in second place in the charts with 8-1 and 21 points.

Three-time Champions League winners Belogorie continued their poor campaign. They lost to Dinamo Moscow in straight sets, which was their fourth successive defeat, and are now 10th in the standings with 3-6 and 8 points.

Dinamo-Lo stunned Zenit Saint-Petersburg and beat them by a 3-1.

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.
