Please be assured that the primary concern of the FIVB is the health and well-being of all our athletes, officials and fans. The FIVB is monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus very closely on an hour-by-hour basis. This is a fast-moving global issue, and we are in regular consultation with both local and international authorities, including the International Olympic Committee and the World Health Organisation (WHO), to determine any potential impact on upcoming FIVB events.
