The men’s and women’s Russian volleyball championships will have strict regulations when it comes to the next season, imposed to protect all participants from the coronavirus.


Some clubs who’ll play the 2020/21 Superliga revealed the new regulations that will be applied as a precaution to reduce infection and spreading COVID-19.

First of all, persons arriving from regions that are most affected by COVID-19 or from abroad are to be isolated for a period of 14 days at home or at a training base if there are no risks for other persons. A condition for overcoming the isolation of individuals is the presence of repeated negative PCR tests.

As for matches themselves, the condition for admission of the team to the match is the presence of negative PCR tests of all participants not older than 48 hours prior to the date of the match. Supporting documents must be sent to the host club at least 24 hours before the match.

Thus, the All-Russian Volleyball Federation (VFV) became the first national federation to impose regulations against the coronavirus for the upcoming club season. Hopefully, other federations will follow its footsteps.

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.
