The 2nd round of the 2019/20 Chinese Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season is postponed due to coronavirus outbreak.


Round 2 of the 2019/20 Super League should have started today, but because the country is affected by the coronavirus outbreak, it was postponed with the new date yet to be determined. Round 1 was held on January 19 with Henan, Zhejiang, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Bayi, and Shandong being victorious.

The Chinese Volleyball Association (CVA) hasn't yet issued a statement regarding the postponement of Round 2 games nor regarding the date of the resumption of the competition. Due to the outbreak of the new virus that officially begun on January 7 and killed over 300 people across China so far, many foreign players that were hired by the Super League clubs have left the country.

TUR W: VakıfBank and Eczacıbaşı extend their brutal winning streaks

Sonja Newcombe's transfer to Eczacibasi was hopeless. She is very ineffective in attack. In the match against PTT Spor didn't finish 6 balls in attack. For 2 sets she didn't score any points.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @Direktor De Cecco doesn't have hitters like Juantorean, Leal, Simon. Leon and Atanasijevic are not enough. Rychlicki is already a good opposite, will only grow in the next few years to become 1st class.
I am not sure if you noticed that two Perugia starters (Lanza and Podrascanin) were benched in the 4th set. Lube is just too good, they are the best in the world right now.

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply
