One of the most popular leagues in the world decided to insert some innovations into its competition for the next season.



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. The number of video challenges during a single game, which each team can ask, will be two. Of course, if challenge is successful, the number of challenges at disposal remains the same. In other case, it will be reduced.
