The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) will give the second chance to the Thailand Women’s National Team in regard to testing of its members for Covid-19 and, subsequently, in regard to participating in the VNL 2021.



The FIVB hasn’t eliminated the Thailand Women’s National Team from the 2021 Volleyball Nations League even though the federation from Asia decided to withdraw the team from the event due to as many as 22 positive cases of Covid-19 at players and staff members.

The Thai federation (TVA) had communicated its decision to the FIVB who has then changed its regulation for the VNL (only national teams with negative tests of its member for Covid-19 prior to announcing lists of players are eligible to compete) in favor of Thailand Women. The FIVB informed TVA that the fact a Covid-19 infection was detected among its members doesn’t necessarily mean they are actually positive for the virus because they received the first dose of the vaccine on April 29. In such circumstances, positive blood results might occur as the body needs more time to produce antibodies. So, the FIVB gave additional 2-3 days to TVA to repeat testing and provide results.

The Thailand NT members are to receive the second dose of vaccine on May 14 – 6 days before scheduled departure to Rimini, Italy, to the VNL.
