Three teams have qualified for the semifinals of the 2020 Men's Volleyball South American Club Championship in Contagem, Brazil.

 

The first duel between Brazilian and Argentinean clubs at the 2020 Campeonato Sudamericano de Clubes in Contagem ended with the victory of hosts and also defending champions Sada Cruzeiro. Brazilian runners-up beat Argentinean titleholders Bolívar Voley in Pool B in straight sets but in a very disputed match: 3-0 (25-18, 29-27, 25-23). Otávio Pinto delivered 10 points for the winning side. Knowing that a team coached by Marcelo Méndez was victorious at the opening of the tournament, it has reached the leadership of the pool and qualified for the semifinals.

In the opening match of Day 2, the other Brazilian team EMS Taubaté Funvic debuted in this year’s event with a 3-0 win against the Peruvian Regatas Lima (out of the competition with 2 defeats) in Pool A. A duel of Taubaté and UPCN San Juan Voley Club from Argentina, tomorrow, will define who will finish first in the pool as both clubs booked semifinal ticket.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
