The Italian Women’s Volleyball League suspended five out of six matches scheduled for today, February 23, due to the danger of spreading of coronavirus.


All volleyball activities for today are suspended by the Italian Women’s League to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country. The coronavirus outbreak in Italy is the biggest outside of Asia, causing the death of three people, while more than 150 are infected.

This decision was recommended by the Minister for Youth and Sport. The Italian League imposed its suspension to the matches of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season in the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Piedmont in which five matches of Round 20 were to be held today.

The only encounter that took place was between Il Bisonte Firenze and Savino Del Bene Scandicci, in the region of Tuscany. The latter prevailed by a 3-1 and took over third place in the charts from Igor Gorgonzola Novara.

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply
