Let's talk about delays in volleyball.



An improper action of a team that defers resumption of the game is a delay and includes, among others:

16.1.1 delaying regular game interruptions; 

16.1.2 prolonging interruptions, after having been instructed to resume the game;

16.1.3 requesting an illegal substitution; 

16.1.4 repeating an improper request;

16.1.5 delaying the game by a team member.


16.2.1 “Delay warning” and “delay penalty” are team sanctions. Delay sanctions remain in force for the entire match. All delay sanctions are recorded on the score sheet. 

16.2.2 The first delay in the match by a team member is sanctioned with a “DELAY WARNING”.

16.2.3 The second and subsequent delays of any type by any member of the same team in the same match constitute a fault and are sanctioned with a “DELAY PENALTY”: a point and service to the opponent.

16.2.4 Delay sanctions imposed before or between sets are applied in thefollowing set

TURNAROUND: FIVB awards last wild card for 2017 Club World Championship to Dinamo!

It is all about entrance 'fees': because Moscow has more money than Conegliano and the last couldn't or didn't want to pay those 100.000 US $, Moscow took over. If this is the right way to distribute the (too?) many (4) wildcards, everybody should decide on his own. Reply
