CEV abolished the technical timeouts!


2185 3

At a meeting held in Kazan in Russia, the CEV Board of Administration decided to abolish the technical timeouts.


They explained that in all competitions under the auspices of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV), starting from May 14, there will no longer be the technical timeouts after the 8th and 16th points. 

The decision does not apply to national championships, but only for CEV competitions.

Does this mean that the old rules of the game are returning? Or they expect that the match will be more interesting and shorter?

What do you think?

Technical time-outs are too much. Rhytm of the game just disappears because of that. Good decision made by cev, i wish crooked FIVB will do the same thing for international tournaments.

in PlusLiga there are no technical time-outs and thanks to that the games are more interesting to watch, probably because the flow of the game is not disturbed (if only they eliminated 10-minute breaks for commercials after 2 sets it would be perfect...)

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
