The South American Volleyball Confederation (CSV) decided which countries will organize Olympic qualifications in both competitions at the meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

The Executive Committee of the CSV, commanded by the President Rafael Lloreda and attended by the five confederation members, that was held in Rio de Janeiro formalized the decision on the organization of the two continental Olympic qualification tournaments in January.

Colombia (the city of Manizales) will host the Women’s tournament, beating the proposals of Argentina (whose federation President was certain his country will get the organization) and Peru. In addition to the home team, Argentina, Peru and Venezuela will also play the tournament. Brazil is the only female national team from South America that already secured a berth in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Chile (the capital of Santiago) will organize the Men’s qualifier and will face Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. Chilean federation was the only one to bid for hosting the tournament. Brazil and Argentina have already sealed the two continental tickets for the event in Japan.

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.
