BEIJING, June 9 (Xinhua) -- There will be no high-level beach volleyball events, three stars or above, before the second half of October this year, the International Federation de Volleyball (FIVB) announced on its official website on Monday.
FIVB updated the calendar for the beach volleyball events for the rest of the pandemic-interrupted 2019-20 season, with some previously postponed events, originally scheduled for March and May, cancelled.
These include the 3-star events in Bandar Abbas, Iran; Cote d'Ivore, Australia and Jurmala, Latvia, as well as a 4-star event in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
A further update will be provided in August after organizers consult local health authorities, the world volleyball governing body said.
FIVB noted that it will launch the application process for the 2020-21 beach volleyball season this month.
