By the standards of Europe, the HLF decision looks quite logical

Pandemic coronavirus has caused serious force majeure in conducting various sports competitions, including volleyball. In virtually all countries conduct domestic tournaments had urgently to pause, and as the term of quarantine are still ongoing, many national federations were forced to announce the official early completion of the seasons. For example, at the moment, among the European Championships on pause remain unless the Turkish and Belarusian.

Thus, hopes to determine the best directly on volleyball, maximally respecting the principle of sport, were in vain. Therefore, the heads of the national federations had to decide the controversial question: to determine the Champions and winners of their leagues at the current team’s position in the standings or end tournaments with no awards?

As you know, members of the Executive Committee of Federation of volleyball of Ukraine (HLF) by a majority of voters voted for the completion of the Championships in the men’s and women’s Superliga without awarding medals. But what decisions were taken in other countries:

ITALY. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

FRANCE. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

GERMANY. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

POLAND. In the women’s League champion and winners determined by the results of the regular season. In the men’s League, where until the end of the regular season, didn’t play two rounds, a majority vote decided not to define the champion and prize-winners.

BELGIUM. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

RUSSIA. Champions and winners determined at the end of the regular Championships, although this decision was taken contrary to the relevant provisions of the Regulations of the championship.

CZECH Republic. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

SWITZERLAND. By a majority of voters chose the option of completion of the Championships without identifying Champions and winners.

BULGARIA. Champions determined at the end of the regular Championships, but the individual clubs have declared their intention to file a formal complaint against this decision.

Therefore, based on the foregoing, the decision of Executive Committee of Federation of volleyball of Ukraine seems logical.
