FAQ

What is coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the recently discovered coronavirus.

What is the current worldwide situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Please refer to the World Health Organisation (WHO) website for the latest situation report.

What is the status of scheduled FIVB events? Will there be further changes to the calendar?

The FIVB maintains an open dialogue with all the event organisers of future events to determine the appropriate course of action. All changes to the volleyball, beach volleyball, and snow volleyball event calendars will be communicated to stakeholders as soon as possible.

What is the status of the VNL 2020 ?

The FIVB announced the cancellation of the VNL 2020 on Friday 8 May 2020 due to the evolving nature of the pandemic, the complexity of staging the global event across multiple host cities and the commitment to safeguarding the health of athletes, officials and fans.

This decision was jointly agreed by the FIVB Board of Administration, the VNL Council and the event organisers.

Will the host cities, locations and dates remain the same for the VNL 2021?

Following the cancellation of the VNL 2020, the FIVB is now focused on organising the VNL 2021. All parties are working together on coordinating the schedule for next year’s edition of the competition, and this will be confirmed at a later date.

What does the cancellation of VNL 2020 mean for the Volleyball Challenger Cup 2020 and the Challenger teams for 2021 VNL?

Both men’s and women’s editions of the 2020 FIVB Volleyball Challenger Cup will not be held this year. Teams that qualified for the VNL 2020 in the 2019 edition of the Challenger Cup, the Slovenia national men’s volleyball team and Canada national women’s volleyball team, will retain their places for the VNL 2021.

Have new dates for the postponed beach volleyball events been confirmed yet?

The FIVB is in regular contact with the respective event organisers regarding the rescheduling of these events and all changes will be communicated at a later stage.

HAVE THE DATES FOR 2022 THE FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL WOLD CHAMPIONSHIPS BEEN CONFIRMED YET?

Following the rescheduling of the 2021 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships for June 2022 in Rome, Italy, the FIVB is working closely with all the organisers, the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI), Sport e Salute and the Italian Volleyball Federation (FIPAV) to identify the most suitable dates in June 2022 for the event. This will be communicated to all the stakeholders at a later stage. 

WITH THE NEXT FIVB BEACH VOLLEYBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS PLANNED FOR 2022, DOES IT MEAN THAT THE FOLLOWING EDITION WILL BE HELD IN 2024 TO ENSURE A TWO-YEAR GAP ?

Not at all, the decision to postpone the 2021 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships to June 2022 was a necessary solution due to significant changes to the global sports calendar following the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 in light of the global coronavirus pandemic. Currently, the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships 2023 are scheduled to take place in 2023 as planned. 

Have there been any changes to the qualification process for the olympic Games Tokyo 2020?

In light of the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the FIVB announced the adaptation of the Beach Volleyball Qualification System following the approval of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board and the FIVB Board of Administration. The qualification places for the Olympic volleyball competitions have already been decided and will not be impacted by the decision to postpone the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

How has the FIVB supported its athletes during the global coronavirus pandemic?

The FIVB has launched its Athletes’ Relief Support fund to provide short-term assistance to professional volleyball and beach volleyball players who have been affected financially by the global coronavirus pandemic and are currently unable to afford the basic necessities including, but not limited to, food, family care and housing.
