While the LNV has made the decision to continue its championships despite the closed session imposed by the confinement, all the clubs except that of Nice requested by press release the pause of the Men’s League A.
There is something special about French volleyball. While the National Volleyball League (LNV) announced at the beginning of November that all the clubs expressed themselves unanimously in favor of maintaining the activity of the Men’s League A and League B championships as well as the championship League A female, this front unit begins to crumble. Indeed, a press release from most of the men’s clubs, including that of Tours, qualifies as “tendentious” the affirmative position of the LNV, who assured that ” the decision to continue was taken unanimously “.
In this press release, thirteen of the fourteen clubs taking part in the Men’s League A championship confirm have reluctance to play matches in the current health context and ask ” the provisional suspension of the championship until December 1 and the postponement of matches to the period from December 26 to January 17 “. A date that is not taken at random since the government has, for the moment, set the end of the return to confinement period for the first day of December.
A press release signed by the ” Men’s League A clubs outside the Nice club, that of the president “. Indeed, the president of the LNV, Alain Griguer, is also that of the Nice club. A firm position that could move the lines and avoid as much as possible a closed session harmful for club finances in such a particular context.
