News from the CEV

Luxembourg, March 6, 2020. The CEV has been liaising intensively with all relevant parties, reviewing the decisions made by the national authorities of a number of countries and unifying them according to its Regulatory Framework. As a result, with the health and well-being of athletes, officials and fans as its primary concern, the CEV can confirm the re-scheduling of the matches postponed earlier this month due the escalation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Europe. Through the much-appreciated help offered by the club of OK Nova KBM Branik MARIBOR and the Volleyball Federation of Slovenia, a number of matches will be taking place at Sportna Dvorana Ljudski Vrt in Maribor, Slovenia, according to the following programme:

•    March 13: Match No. 5-003 TRENTINO Itas (ITA) vs. JASTRZEBSKI Wegiel (POL)
•    March 14: Match No. 5-004 JASTRZEBSKI Wegiel (POL) vs. TRENTINO Itas (ITA)
•    March 18: Match No. 5-301 Fenerbahce Opet ISTANBUL (TUR) vs. Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA (ITA)

•    March 19: Match No. 5-306 Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL (TUR) vs. Savino Del Bene SCANDICCI (ITA)

Moreover, all involved parties have agreed to cancel the match 5-308 A. Carraro Imoco CONEGLIANO (ITA) vs Allianz MTV STUTTGART (GER). As winners of the match 5-307 played earlier this week in Germany (3-0), the team of A. Carraro Imoco CONEGLIANO has qualified to the semi-finals of the CEV Champions League Volley 2020.

All other Champions League matches will go ahead as planned – with those due to take place in Perugia and Civitanova both closed to the public in order to comply with the measures adopted by Italian authorities for the holding of public events.

The CEV Cup 2020 – Women quarterfinal fixture 4-408 between Unet e-work BUSTO ARSIZIO (ITA) and Dinamo KAZAN (RUS) scheduled for earlier this week will be taking place in Busto Arsizio on March 11 behind closed doors.

As for the CEV Cup quarterfinal fixture 4-108 between Leo Shoes MODENA and GFC AJACCIO initially due to take place on March 4, the two parties have agreed to cancel the match 4-108 and to regard the result of the match 4-107 played in Ajaccio on February 26 as the one determining the team progressing to the semi-final stage of the competition. As a result, by virtue of their 3-0 victory in Ajaccio, the team of Leo Shoes MODENA have qualified to the semis of the CEV Volleyball Cup 2020 – Men.  

The CEV acknowledge that the Volleyball family is dealing with difficult times, but invites all parties to stick together as members of one team in order to manage this situation by displaying a sense of cooperation and solidarity.
