The next season of both men’s and women’s volleyball championship of Russian will be played in a format similar to the one that was used in the CEV Champions League for many years.


According to Biznes Online, the Superliga clubs approved the option proposed by the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) in regard to the format of the next edition of both national championships.

The format is as follows: the regular season (September 26 - March 14) will be held with 14 teams and 26 rounds (round-robin) apiece. Then, the playoff for the Final Six will be held according to the scheme 3rd vs. 10th, 4th vs. 9th, 5th vs. 8th, and 6th vs. 7th. The two best teams in the regular season will go directly to the Final Six (April 4-10). The winner of the regular season will host this final stage. There will be no play-out, meaning that no team will leave the Superliga.

This format was determined for the last season, too, but because of the premature ending as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Final Six didn’t take place. The final decision on the 2020/21 competition formula should be made at the Presidium of the VFV, on June 26.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

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

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

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
