You all know that the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) decided to modify few rules in 2017 in order to make this sports discipline more attractive both for the fans watching the games at home and live. Some of the new rules are related to the scoring system while some are related to the rules of the game. The second ones caused a lot of controversies since they might influence on the dynamics of the game and restrict players in their play. But, since these new rules still have not been introduced (will make their debut at both Men’s and Women’s U23 World Championship in about a month), we will leave the final judgment on them when these tournaments are over.
Anyway, since our website has always thought of our readers and volleyball fans around the world, we would like to give you a chance to express your thoughts on how to simplify some volleyball rules and which rules would you implement in that sense. The intention of this WorldofVolley’s campaign is to help FIVB and its Rules of the Games & Refereeing Commission in making volleyball rules as clearly as possible for the fans by collecting ideas on this from around the world. And, ultimately, to make the volleyball rules better.
So we ask you, our dear readers, to start sending us your comments with the ideas on the new or modified volleyball rules that would make this sports discipline more interesting and simpler. After some time, we will gather these ideas and make a list of suggestions!
