As from the season 2016/2017, Japan’s Volleyball League (V-League) will introduce video challenge system. Thus, it joined a small but selected company of national leagues which followed the footsteps of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) which have already introduced video challenge system into competitions under their patronage.
Before the start of V-League, the system will be tried out during the 2016 Summer College League, on July 1-3.
At the moment, V-League decided to allow teams to call video check only in two situations: for IN-OUT balls and NO BLOCK-BLOCK OUT balls.

In other case, it will be reduced.
