We have the first official volleyball competition being played after the shutdown of all the activities related to this sport across the world due to the coronavirus pandemic!



Although national lockdown restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic were eased in most of the countries in late April and beginning of May, allowing social contacts and reopening of sporting activities, volleyball wasn’t among sport disciplines that resumed on an official level unlike football, basketball… until a few days ago!

Vietnam kicked off both men’s and women’s championships, that were initially to take place in March but due to the outbreak of the pandemic have been postponed, on June 13. Furthermore, it was kicked off and continued with the presence of spectators on the stands. The 2,000-seat hall in Hà Tĩnh, in which the club of the same name hosted the match against Long An in the men’s competition, was packed. The same trend continued in the following games such as the one between Hà Tĩnh and VLXD Bình Dương.

Earlier, the Vietnamese government assessed that the number of cases infected by the COVID-19 no longer presents the risk to the community.
