Construction and inspection of a large complex with the sports hall, shopping center and a hotel in Ariake district near Tokyo, is over. Ariake Arena will be officially open in April next year, a few months prior to the beginning of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. The Japanese Volleyball Associations (JVA) will organize an international friendly tournament named “2020 Ariake Arena Volleyball Test Match”. Four national teams in men’s (Japan, Australia, China, and South Korea) and that much in women’s competition (Japan, China, Thailand, and Chinese Taipei) will participate in the event that will start on April 21 and end on April 26.

The complex in which both male and female volleyball tournaments will be played include a shopping center and over 200 restaurants, a music hall that can accommodate 8,000 people, and a theater. A hotel with approximately 750 rooms and a bus terminal connecting airports Haneda and Narita is also constructed. In addition, more than 1,500 condominiums have been built on the south side of the facility, and the nearby building in Olympic Village will be used as a condominium after the tournament.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

Thailand win title in Women’s Volleyball at SEA Games for 12th successive time

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
